Photographer's Note

Sometimes nature behaves in amazing and unexpected way for us, people. But it only proves once again that we are not able to predict it's strange creativity and imagination, no matter how smart we think we are.

This is a shot I took at the river's mouth of Kamchia River - a few meters further left is the opening to the sea, no wider than 3-4 meters at the moment. The layer of sand you see here had quite a different shape in autumn, and even more different in winter. Suppose it will be changed after a few months again, to something else.
The river is forming all the time curves and shapes of the sand and then destroy them only to sculpture new ones. I have the feeling it is a continuous play nature enjoys, and we are just humble observers.
Of course I was impressed of the little white boat, just thrown out there, not even tied up to anything.
For me it was a calm and tranquil scene, suggesting the pure nature's eternity...


As a workshop I am posting the same boat taken from another angle, so you can see more clearly the layers of water at both sides of the sand strip. I hesitated which one to chose for main picture, but in the second one /WS/ I found the sand colours and grass too washed out - they couldn't be fixed much even with pp because their natural colours were in ash tones.
Any comments for improvement are welcomed as always!

PS: Jeppe inspired me to show you this picture by posting a similar sand strip yesterday, but with a house on it...:-)
