Here a series of drawings by the Greatest Artist. To me they bring images of China to mind, mist covered hills and meandering rivers.
I was amazed, watching them appear and disappear. They were there, for a moment, no matter if anyone saw it or not.

Waves ascended. Stillness remained

Baltic Sea coast, Karwieńskie Błota, 2010-07-13, 20:04

For us, living way from the coast, the open horizon, that vast, living expanse of the sea has a truly mesmerizing effect. Regardless of age :)
More sea-centred imagery to come soon.

I've been away from this blog for a while. That does not meat I was not taking photographs. This image was taken during our short trip to Karpacz, Karkonosze at the beginning of July. Our first hike was up the Łomniczka stream valley. I got prepared, took all lenses, filters, tripod. I knew where we would be going and approximate locations of interesting spots. When we stopped here I sat for a while and watched my sons play in the water. When I was ready to start photographing - I slipped the very moment I stepped onto the river boulders. I forgot how slippery they can be. I briused my leg quite badly and nearly dropped  the camera into water. A hard lesson...
I tried several locations, both on the way up and down, hoping for some good results, inspired by the water photography master, my friend John.
