Along the way…

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” John Lubbock, The Use of Life

River meets the ocean…

“The coast is an edgy place. Living on the coast presents certain stark realities and a wild, rare beauty. Continent confronts ocean. Weather intensifies. It’s a place of tide and tantrum; of flirtations among fresh- and saltwaters, forests and shores….”   Carl Safina, The View From Lazy Point

conflux…

Solitude…

“We live, in fact, in a world starved for solitude, silence, and private: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship.” C.S. Lewis

High Water Beautification

spillway-fish-Salmon River-Oregon-fish habitat-photography, SwittersB

Man’s attempt at some form of habitat management and control of Salmon/Steelhead/Sea Run Cutthroat passage up the Salmon River (Oregon Coast). I am sure there was/is a supposed benefit to the fish with the construction of this spillway at the hatchery on the Salmon River. Yet there is a visceral brain tweak with ugly, manmade, unnecessary coming to mind. The supposed practical vs. wild/natural conflict in my mind. The river does look better at a higher level and hides the ugly structure below. I doubt there was a passage issue before that the fish could not have conquered at such a low gradient. The first image was in early October, the second shot in January.
