Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul.
And sings the tune
Without the words
and never stops at all.

I love the way these birds scurry to a destination and very quickly get to work before the next wave. You've caught their determination here. The water looks like liquid silver. Really nice!!

I can't yet capture a single "beautiful" black and white: I should just print this out, and carry it with me for inspirational. I'm awestruck with amazement - great job with light and form.
13 Apr 2009 5:29am
This really is superb!!! The combination and composition of light and dark is wonderful!!!

13 Apr 2009 6:04am
Lovely moody image...love the light here :)
13 Apr 2009 6:06am
I love all those horizontal lines made by the water. This is beautiful Sharon.
13 Apr 2009 6:48am
A mirror for a songbird - this is so beautiful in its shining simplicity... Mother Nature & your eye making a gem ~
13 Apr 2009 7:09am
Brilliantly composed and processed! All the birds are intent on their purpose and that is a wonderful thing to capture!
13 Apr 2009 7:24am
Very nice photo, i really love the beach shot with the slight reflectance of the water on the sand. Well executed.
13 Apr 2009 7:25am
Excellent. The reflections in the sand are extraordinary. Wonderful the black and white one
13 Apr 2009 7:34am
Wow! Wonderful image...
13 Apr 2009 7:48am
Beautiful silhouettes and reflections. i like how the water's edge creates a strong dynamic, bit of a shame that the left corner is missing. but nevertheless a great shot.
13 Apr 2009 8:09am
Really nice B&W composition !!!
13 Apr 2009 8:41am
great shot in b&w mode
i need a cigarette at this moment
13 Apr 2009 8:52am
Superbe atmosphère, très poétique.
13 Apr 2009 8:59am
Impresionante composición. Me gustan mucho los reflejos sobre el agua. Muy buena.

A silver or mercury sand... ideal 'studio' for these elegant sea birds ! I love all these little lines when sea and sand meet while waves come down. Beautiful Sharon.
13 Apr 2009 9:55am
This is absolute ART i think. You did it and i like very very much! More more more ... (sorry but i'm deep impressed) ... Have a nice day!
13 Apr 2009 10:00am
Very nice lines and blended monochromatic tones and without the birds it would not shine as it does

13 Apr 2009 11:33am
Great pairing of verse and photo!
13 Apr 2009 11:38am

13 Apr 2009 12:10pm
Excellent lighting and a great B/W looks so sureal there well taken :)
13 Apr 2009 1:06pm
Lovely shot with silvery water. The beach is such a breath taking place to be. I could stand for hours watching and listening to the surf.
13 Apr 2009 1:08pm
Just beautiful. There is something very soothing in this image. The simplicity of the scene is wonderful. I love the sounds of the sea lapping the shore and watching the shore birds skitter along the water's edge catching their meals. This brings those moments to mind.
13 Apr 2009 1:23pm
I'm lost for words, this is SO georgous with so many feelings , bravo
13 Apr 2009 1:30pm
Superb capture Sharon! You have moved the bar up again on the WOW factor! ;-)
13 Apr 2009 1:43pm
Beautiful lighting and color toning and the birds are so busy gathering their dinner, they don't even notice you! Somehow they always notice me when I arrive with my camera :)
13 Apr 2009 2:02pm
I've always been moved by that particular poem of Emily Dickinson. Your photograph today is just exquisite. Being a nature photographer, I really love seeing you let loose your talent and creativity on my kind of subject matter. Superbly done. Bravo!
13 Apr 2009 2:19pm
Another striking image. A wonderful composition.
13 Apr 2009 2:23pm
You are the master of black and white. This shot wouldn't have been presented better than this.
13 Apr 2009 2:41pm
13 Apr 2009 2:51pm
Absolutely wonderful, Sharon, words and image
13 Apr 2009 2:56pm
Remarquable ;) Even if completela different, I got the same feeling than yesterday, the horizontal lines give a lot of tension to this peaceful scene
13 Apr 2009 2:59pm
Another good one.
13 Apr 2009 3:10pm
Looks like a moody evening on the beach, well done!
13 Apr 2009 4:04pm
This is what perfection looks like.
13 Apr 2009 4:09pm
i can hear them chirping. excellent processing to make it look like a painting =D
13 Apr 2009 4:53pm
13 Apr 2009 5:08pm
la plage qui s'étire à l'infini et les mouettes en ombres chinoiss .. un B&W étonnant de contrastes et de perspective.
13 Apr 2009 5:55pm
Wonderful processing-very serene and beautiful.
13 Apr 2009 6:22pm
It's funny, you and I have almost the same today. Very nice coincidence ... especially now that yours makes me dream and travel ...
13 Apr 2009 6:30pm
Superb reflections and birds silhouettes with this strong contrast ! Well done !
13 Apr 2009 6:49pm
like you've been painting with light - excellent
13 Apr 2009 7:10pm
Really lovely shot
13 Apr 2009 8:41pm
Excellent shot ! I love the reflexion and the birds in this B&W choice. Great.
13 Apr 2009 8:53pm
WOW! The contrasts in this photo looks absolutely amazing!! The birds to the the way the water looks ... wow ...
13 Apr 2009 9:46pm
13 Apr 2009 10:03pm
Brilliant. Although maybe the contrast a bit overdone?
13 Apr 2009 10:17pm
BRILLIANT ! I can see colors in this photo. That is definitely SILVER photo !
13 Apr 2009 10:59pm
Those are such powerful words and perfect for the intensity of your photograph here.
13 Apr 2009 11:07pm
Nice shot of the birds.....has it warmed up in Canada yet?
13 Apr 2009 11:18pm
@Virgil: Thank you! It's not too bad on the west coast, today was 12 degrees C but the wind was awfully cold.
just excellent work BC!! and probably the most straight forward landscape shot i have seen of yours so far (although i have missed quite a few lately due to being away). :P
beautiful light, beautiful subject matter = a gorgeous scene!!
14 Apr 2009 2:06am
Wonderfully composed...love the shimmer of light off the water...adds a timelessness to the shot.
14 Apr 2009 2:19am
Outstanding ! A spectacular light and contrast ! Excellent performance in B & W.
14 Apr 2009 2:23am
14 Apr 2009 3:48am
Great job and great choice the B&W. Common scene in real life but nicely processed become original and unique. Bravo.
14 Apr 2009 12:24pm
Langue de mer qui lèche le sable, becs d'oiseaux qui piquent le sol, c'est mélodieux comme une chanson ...
14 Apr 2009 1:51pm
Your treatment is great here, Sharon. The heavy grain gives the image feel of the surreal.
14 Apr 2009 2:53pm
Makes me long for a walk along the beach ... for now, though, the magnificent beauty of this will have to tide me over! You've captured the magic of the sea shore ... beautiful, BC ... ron
14 Apr 2009 11:08pm
Awesome shot. The black and white is great as are the reflections.
14 Apr 2009 11:38pm
Such a cute sight of these birds on this mirror background ! very touching. Beautiful.
15 Apr 2009 4:48pm
Ohh I feel like I'm dreaming... what a delightful image.
17 Apr 2009 4:14pm
nicely composed and an excellent b&w shot
17 Apr 2009 7:31pm
You do well merging images and words.
