Blue Sky Over Aqua…

These three images show the tide out on a flat at Christmas Island in the South Pacific. As the tide would come in the bonefish, trevally, sharks and other hungry fish would push up onto the flat, in the rising waters looking for food. What appears to be high and dry sand, would soon be under one to two feet of water with the shadows of marauding fish visible on the bottom…casting to shadows…to ghosts.

Portland, Oregon

I took this shot a few weeks back and neglected to post it. The shot is from the East bank of the Willamette River, looking W/NW toward the south shoreline of downtown Portland, beneath the Marquam Bridge.

Ring Full of Midges

The midge, buzzer, gnat, chironomid fly pattern represents the seemingly ever present small insect that hatches in all manner of waters almost year ’round. Larva, pupa or adult patterns are tiny morsels that trout find available when almost nothing else is ‘coming off’ (emerging/hatching) the waters in the Winter and part of the mix the rest of the year. Like popcorn in the food chain of life.

good night, good morning,

recharging, renewing, rebirthing.

The flow of ideas…….

“May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children.”   Rainer Rilke
