  5. The light on your first photo is really impressive. I like the colours of the last one, too, but why did you cut top of the mast?

  6. That's why it isn't enough to know how to buil a boat, but one must also be able to feel the desire for life.
    A weekend filled with harmony-waves for you.

  7. The sea is a scary place it need Poseidon as it's God to protect all who sail in her. And I can't swim, so it's very scary to me !!

    I Love that little fur ball !

  9. They are all stunning. I don't feel worthy to critique great work as this. You work amazes me. I saw a book at the bookstore yesterday called Visual Poetry. You could have written it. Check it out.

  14. Prospero, the refined image of the boat in that dark sea is good for meditation.

  16. I like the first photo. A light house? watching over the sky, sea and land... it's appealing. Enjoy your weekend and have a good one!

  20. yes, definitely yes, and also definitely the lighthouse against the darkness. Appeals to my melancholy nature.

  21. The lighthouse shot is so dramatic and the last one reminds me of how vast the ocean is. Beautiful! Oh Angelina how I have missed you!

  22. I love the lighting and colors in your photos! Another great series, Prospero..

  23. Amazing shots! The surface of the water in the last pic is simply gorgeous!

  24. The mood maybe sombre, but intensely beautiful images. Angelina....could she look more adorable than this shot?!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What a great title for this set. If I remember it correctly, Poseidon was very moody just like the sea. Seems like he had a good day when you captured the pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I especially like the last shot. The placement of the boat adds another dimension to the photo. Very nice.

  27. I'm for the monochrome lighthouse!

  28. I absolutely love the first image. It is wonderful!

  29. "Et c’est un chant de mer comme il n’en fut jamais chanté, et c’est la Mer en nous qui le chantera :
    La Mer, en nous portée, jusqu’à la satiété du souffle et la péroraison du souffle.
    La Mer, en nous, portant son bruit soyeux du large et tourte sa grande fraîcheur d’aubaine par le monde.

    Poésie pour apaiser la fièvre d’une veille au périple de mer. Poésie pour mieux vivre notre veille au délice de mer.
    Et c’est un songe en mer comme il n’en fut jamais songé, et c’est la Mer en nous qui le songera :
    La Mer, en nous tissée, jusqu’à ces ronceraies d’abîme, la Mer, en nous, tissant ses grandes heures de lumière et ses grandes pistes de ténèbres ―"

    (Saint-John Perse)

    (are you still not bored with me and my endless quotes? are you? :-)

  30. Angelina hit a chord with me today.

    I see in her eyes a retired old sea captain, gazing at the oceans ... the memories of years gone by in her pensive stare.

  31. "...Three lines of wave together raced, and, full in the white crest of them, a wild Sea-Bull flung to the shore, a fell and marvellous thing. The whole land held his voice, and answering roared in each echo..."

    But you've photographed a Poseidon more tamed!
    :-)

    Beautiful photographic series!

  32. I always feel so peaceful after visiting you, and looking at your beautiful shots! Love the lighthouse - and your little dog!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well, Prospero, I think these exemplify some of your best work...especially the first two, but the others are also superb! That lighthouse shot is stunning!

  34. magic in quiet tones...you are so talented , thanks for sharing here

  35. I love how alone each photo feels! The water is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Poseidon is powerful. The sheer size and grandness of the big water scares me. Your vision reflects this perception of divine grandness and energy of nature perfectly!
