  3. Ah, but you can take credit for observing and capturing the moment, and then balancing the hard rock with the ethereal mist - gently, within the same frame. Yeah, I like it too. Duncan.

  5. Cheer's Duncan. The mighty Ottawa that morning was one of those mornings on the water where everything is framed as I look at it.just beautiful. Its truly one of the wild portions of that river thats left; and I'm glad my eyes got a chance to see it. And I'm very happy to have brought it to you guys.

    Thanks Clyde and Gerry.

  9. Thanks brother. I hadn't heard of the syllogism before! This is why I enjoy sharing my thoughts; the leads given by others are beyond appreciated.

    Again thanks a bunch Gio! Putting my thoughts out there over the past few years has been exciting humbling and 100% worth it.

    These comments are the best payment a writer could ask for!

  11. Thanks David! I'm really happy I decided to lean over into the water to snap this one! Really did capture the river I think. I get homesick for the river looking at it!

    Thanks again!
