Woke up with Cold Water

Posted by

The Heron (if you can see him) has to be singing that Tom Waits song "Cold Water" (sorry, Richard ;-) ).
This was caputred at the same time and day as the moonset that I posted a few days ago. I shot several images of the Heron but this is the only one that I liked because of the fact that I did not have my monopod or tripod and the other images were not sharp. This composition also seems to at least have some amount of balance. The scene that morning was amazing, though. I will say that. I hope you enjoy Mr Blue Heron, here....even at a distance :-)

"Woke up this morning
With the cold water
With the cold water
With the cold"

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
