let the savage prevail…

downpours and rainbows
childlike responses to the spectrum
thank goodness for that

Mark Twain similarly said it thusly: “We have not the reverent feeling for the rainbow that a savage has, because we know how it is made. We have lost as much as we gained by prying into that matter.” Let the savage in you prevail. Sometimes we just know too much.

Dark Skies & Roses

This early evening the setting sun was very bright against my neighbor’s trees. Beyond the trees, to the East, the sky was dark. Soon the wind picked up, thunder rumbled across the sky and a brief, heavy rain ensued. All this color and noise followed by a thin rainbow to the East. The few roses we have were drenched and battered. The white one I photographed the other day, looked refreshed this evening.

Life: Tropical Island & The Pot of Gold

Pot of Gold Rainbow Photography Tropical SwittersB

“If I may be so bold,

it isn’t as if you haven’t been told,

that life, day to day, is right before you

and not out there beneath the faint rainbow

and some never found pot of gold”

Every Day in May Challenge: More Fish Not For the Dish

EVERY DAY IN MAY WRITING CHALLENGE: TODAY’S TOPIC…’MORE FISH’

‘More Fish’: Whether a ‘trophy’ fish or a little 5″ gem from a small stream pocket, I enjoy the beauty of fish that I catch or those that others around me catch. I haven’t killed a trout in years. I don’t particularly enjoy eating them. I do enjoy a bit of halibut, salmon, sturgeon or sea bass. But, for the most part, I stick with catch and release….careful release. I know some abhor the grip and grin pose. I confess I will hoist the fish here and there when it is a special gift. Over playing a big fish on too light of rod will put the fish at risk upon release. Getting the fish in for release in a timely manner gives far better odds the fish will survive.

I recently fished with my wife. As you can see, she already has mastered a key element in relaying fishing lore…..exaggeration.

Oh my….my wife hasn’t learned that her left forearm is blocking over half the length of the fish! Of course, she doesn’t care about such things and is just happy to bring the trout to hand.

Ice Off, Over The Hump

Many of us have that favorite lake or river or small stream. One of my favorite lakes has such a positive memory bank, I can hardly let myself think of it this time of year. Too soon. Turnover

Rainbow Trout & Breathtaking Beauty

Sure, I like Brook Trout, Bull Trout, Brown Trout and Cutts. But a heavily spotted Rainbow with flared pectorals is a thing of beauty. Throw in a little rouge on the gill plates and the heart quickens. A tint of olive across the back and your mouth is open as she slips from your grasp back to the depths. LIke a sleek, willing Jezebel, you want her back for just one more time.
