How to survive November 2020-6


Kivenlahti seaside was grey, as I was taking a walk there searching for gray, which is a topic of a month in a Photography FB group I am in. I saw this boat being left in to the reeds. I thought that might make a great B&W shot. So here it is.

I do love boats, sunsets, reflections, colors and I like this photo.It has all those things in it.

Fishing boat

I love the sea, river, lakes. I also love boats- you will see few post of them too as I unsravel my photos from my trip to  India.  Here is one fishing boat getting ready to sail away, as in previous post the sunset gives these photos a nice soft look
