Beautiful composition. I love the treatment too. There is something quite mystical about it.

Love that it's in black and white. It's almost eerie in its effect. Water - the most important thing in all our lives.

Jacob said...

There is, indeed, an aura about this shot...It is my informed opinion that this should be framed and hanged and/or hung in Francisca's Gallery!

VP said...

I like almost any kind of boat and this is unusual for me.

EG Wow said...

I have seen this type of boat on other blogs from the Philippines. What are they called?

This is a beautiful shot, Francesca!

Roger Owen Green said...

Francisca said...

@EG and VP... this boat is called a banca in the Philippines; it's a native outrigger. They come in all sizes, from tiny single man boats - even smaller than this - that are paddled, to enormous motorized ones up to 30 meters /100 feet that can carry passengers and cargo between the islands.

How are you celebrating Christmas?

The tide better come soon, otherwise this poor boat will be stuck.

Low Tide, I miss my place because of your photo. I lived in Donsol (whaleshark) before I came here in the States, have you ever been there?

It is peaceful here, the boat sitting quietly on the sand awaiting the high tide so it may float again. This is a nice picture, calm and serene...

Great photo. I love the black and white.

I like the wild look of outriggers. I imagine travelling in a small one could be most exhilarating.

JM said...

That's a lovely watery scene.

James said...

W is for wonderful and that's what this photo is. It's really an outstanding photograph.

Carla said...

HI Francisca, wonderful shot so moody. Carla

Beth F said...

I love the composition of this -- truly wordless: the elements set the scene.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Oooh....I agree with everyone here. This is a beautiful composition of a lovely scene. I want to jump into that boat and paddle around the ocean. :-) Merry Christmas!

jeannette said...

Francesca,
Please enlighten us, are those "things" to rest the oars on? Beautiful how the background lights up enough to show the boat i the distance with the masts!

Lisa said...

Great shot!

Evelyn said...

Stillness.... Shh...
