Zanzibar Dawn ~ The Seine Netters Perhaps I was never there at all. Perhaps I never saw this early morning scene. A figment of my imagination then. Daily Post: evanescent Share this:PrintTumblrPinterestMoreFacebookTwitterLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... Related

Tish, such beautiful colors! Almost ethereal or surreal, I can only imagine what this must have been, during the time you were shooting it. It must have evoked an emotional response at the time, excitement, joy, wonder, awe! 🙂
Yes, all those sensations evoked, Mitch, and also a sense of privilege that I was lucky enough to be there. But this was one of the reasons why I found living in East Africa for seven years so tiring – all those full-on reactions/emotions, the always being so very much awake when the sights before my eyes often seemed like dreams 🙂
How beautiful , Tish!
Beautiful figment, Tish, reminiscent in both title and photo of an Impressionist painting.
Tish, I am sure it was like living in a “Wonder of Wonders” everyday, from your posts and photography, I have gleaned a sense, that between nature and the natural world, the peoples, places and things all around you, that there was always something to see, shoot, write about. Alas here I even have to remind myself, there are wonders to see everyday! It is just because we live in the places we do and are a part of our surroundings, that we forget to look at the spectacular beauty that is everywhere. It seems much easier to see it, when you are in a different location. 🙂
That’s so true, Mitch. You are literally taken out of yourself. Everything is novel and exciting. And you are right too. We need to look at our very familiar surroundings with the eyes of a stranger now and then. We might be amazed at what we find 🙂
Oh, lovely, Tish!
Thank you, Sue.
This dawn scene is like a beautiful dream!
Oh my goodness this is an unbelievable photograph. And with the red tanker in the background!
So many shades, so many nuances.
If this isn’t in a large frame it darn well ought to be.
One of your best, Miss T.
Am taking a bow, Ark. Thank you 🙂
I’m serious, it is a smashing photo.
🙂 🙂 🙂
Beautiful. Like a painting.
It is very dreamlike.
Wonderful – truly evanescent.
Tish this is so amazing. Like a dream truly.
Another beautiful image 🙂
Such a lovely one though, Tish! 🙂 🙂
