Morning Fog, Lake Chautauqua

Thursday, August 10, 2006
Two ships, morning fog
lost to all the world beyond.
Face into the wind.

Photo is outstanding. Such peace and beauty to be found when you are patient and look.

When are you going to put all your poems and photos in a book? We all love them! Glad you and the family are having a great time on Chautauqua Lake. Seen any good birds? LOB

Dear LOB:

The birding is spotty at Chautuaqua--perhaps because the landscape is so manicured and controlled. And there is no "edge" habitat. It's either lawn, beautiful garden, or huge tall trees. Not much in between. Plus there are many cats and some serious lawn care chemicals. We did manage to see a nice magnolia warbler, the usual gulls and cormorants, loads of martins, and a rose-breasted grosbeak. Missed the Chautauqua red-headed woodpeckers which apparently have moved their colony off the grounds.

SF: Many thanks for your kind words. This is one of my favorite images I've ever taken myself. And it was pure serendipity, like so much of what is good in life--unexpected and amazing.

This is an incredible photo, and the poem is perfect.
