Images from Lake Atitlan in Guatemala; the lake is surrounded by three volcanos on its southern flank and is 340 metres deep.

Listening to – Radiohead’s ‘Optimistic’ and the Verve’s ‘Lucky Man.’

Quote to Inspire – “…[Photographs] alter and enlarge our notions of what is worth looking at and what we have a right to observe.”

  1. Absolutely gorgeous photos. I really like the monochrome of the pier jutting out into the water. The lead photo is fantastic.

    • Hey there, Angeline:

      I’m liking the monochrome image of the pier too – a curious shape enhanced in black and white.

      The lead photo is Lake Atitlan from a vista driving down to the lake through the volcano mountains surrounding it – the cloud work is some fun. Sort of wish I had had my tripod for HDR renderings of the scene.

      Take care … 🙂

  2. wow. beautiful!

    • Hey there, Cezanne:

      Loved the back and forward movement of ‘Ignite’ – sort of moving toward creation in creating.

      You’d probably have a lot of fun reading Thomas King’s novel ‘Green Grass, Running Water.’ Sort of William Faulkner’s ‘Sound and the Fury’ meets up with the creation of the world as told by the creator (those creators) from an American First Nations perspective. Many elements of ignite are there … the back and forth of moving forward in and to creation.

      Good schtuff! Take care …. 😉

  3. Oh my, these are wonderful! So beautiful

  4. Love the sense of calm created in Number 4. Great set.

    • Hey there, Jim:

      The blue of the water and the longer ripple, not quite a wave beneath the peer do seem to calm things. Good.

      Good, also, to read that you’ve completed the poem-a-day for 30 days – well done!

      Take care … 😉

  5. Totally awesome. I’m just out of words. The photographs are really beautiful 🙂
