That's me - ageing timbers.
Great contrast range.
A Good New Year to you, Julie.

Incidentally, Tonk was a love and very intelligent. But he talked too much - very high maintenance.

Very nice shot!:-)
Wish you a blessed Christmas!

Lois said...

I really like this shot Julie, especially the way the water looks.

TheChieftess said...

wonderful shot Julie...the light reflections on the water is wonderful!

Carver said...

Great shot. The water is almost psycadelic.

awarewriter said...

Love the textures and tones. The contrast between the weathered wood and the water is special. Happy New Year.

Lachezar said...

Great framing for a striking detail, you've beautifully captured the water sway!

Johnny Nutcase said...

very cool shot, Julie. a little abstract with some nice textures. like the black and white for this too!

Tulsa Gentleman said...

I can only repeat what others have said, the light reflected from the undulating water contrasted with the grain of weathered timbers is very striking.

Sylvia said...

Absolutely fantastic. The water underneath seems painted. Delightful. The title is very inspiring too. My best wishes to you and the ones you love.

Catalina Lemus Fett said...

Wow! Un hermoso contraste.

michael bird said...

More than striking, Julie. Love the timbers, just cause they're aged and so supportive, and the syrupy texture of the water.

Bengbeng said...

it seems to me like a fish is going to ump out of the water any time :)

B&W is a bit of a let down after the vibrance of the Christmas posts -- but as you know I'm a sucker for old timber and am jolly keen on water ripples too. Makes me think of the wonderful old red-gum wharf at Echuca -- clearly I'm already sighing for the holiday now over.

This capture looks like you painted it with an artist's brush on rippling canvas. Gorgeous!

ρομπερτ said...

What an amazing photography !

Please have a wonderful Sunday.

Misalyn said...

Unique subject. the vibrance of the water is still there and you captured it so well, as the fine and dark lines of the wood.

Abundant blessings for the coming year Ms. Julie.

brattcat said...

what a fine composition this is. the textures are remarkable.

Jilly said...

The sea looks like luscious chocolate custard!

John said...

A neat shot with unusual viewpoint; I don't think I would have guessed the subject but for your short title.

RuneE said...

Water and wood is an unbeatable combination. I liked this one very much.

MyMaracas said...

This is gorgeous. I love the way the rough texture of the wood plays against the smooth, reflective water. There is so much to see in such a simple subject.

Thanks for stopping by at mine, and for joining my Follow list. I am flattered.

JM said...

Gorgeous b&w!

James said...

Outstanding shot. It's really pleasing to the eye. I like the transition from light to darkness and I love the reflected light that bounced off of the water and onto the wood. It makes a great design.

napaboaniya said...

I agree with James above comment, it's an outstanding out. Not often do we take time to see the under.
Happy Monday and have a blast at 2010!! :)

AKO said...

I love the reflections and movements in the water. Great in mono!

I checked out some of your other photos on the blog and I find your way of capturing things very likeable. You have a good eye for details.

diane said...

Your photos just keep getting better. The texture in this one is terrific.

@nemonen said...

I love it. The wood and the water is two elements I love together. Happy New Year!

Virginia said...

Oh now that's a keeper Julie. Lovely contrast. Stunning shot.

The textures separately all so interesting and work so well as a whole. Lovely mono shot!

Icy BC said...

Incredible photo, Julie!

Have a great New Year.

The rough, aged textures of the wood against the smooth, glassy rippling of the water is wonderful. I also like the play of light and shadow in this. ~ Calico Contemplations

tapirgal said...

I can relate to these old pilings, as I live and work over the water, shored up by timbers just such as these. Nice photo!

Dina ... UK said...

Excellent image Julie, very well captured.....
I love the Yaught race images too.

I wish you a very Happy New Year, seeing as you will celebrate it before us...:)
All the best for 2010....

Dragonstar said...

This is lovely! The light on the water and patterning the timbers is so appealing, and the textures are great.

Irene said...

This is gorgeous! Like your image a lot!

Happy New Year!
