very nice capture, you and markus have this special ability to see and capture the beautiful nature where people like me simply fail to notice it,
I am sure that markus will also love this capture, the natural color looks lovely in this pleasing composition, nice notes too ,
tfs & regards
You force one to see beyond the clutter/chaos Bob.
Your message is a "point of reference" not only of changing seasons, but of the change within that "allows" one to see into nature's very soul..
There is beauty in your message, and that's what we need to see here.

There is only one way a person can see and feel all that you have spoken of in this image, and that is by personal experience and wisdom gained through time. You possess them both, thanks for sharing this image and your thoughts.

Helo Bob. A very good mixture and combination of colors in good perspective. The running water adds interest to the frame. Well done and best regards. Jusni

You have captured this wilderness with finesse and portray a scene I get to see very often while exploring sanctuaries. The small streams really are the lifeline for animals and shrubs/bushes and sometimes can come in sudden bursts. Without delving into your thoughts put in your note I see this just as a superb image and a fine perspective. Thanks for sharing.

Bob, I've seen your fresh portfolio picture and it's cool!
Now for the picture in hand. Did I tell you that I read your note first and then look at your picture? Because that's how I relate to your work. There is so much thought behind an image and when you can articulate it in words, the impact is deeper. Yes, simplicity and complexity juxtapose each other in this image.
And I agree with you about "beauty" that you speak of in your last paragraph....

As you have told 10,000 things about wilderness here. And I have felt same. When I recall some places where I went without a camera (infact that time I didn't own any camera). Very well captured and well said. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello, Bob. Your notes, as always, are delicious. I love your musings, the way you put things into perspective, and how you seem to find hope in moments that seem so barren.
This photo captures the chaos of nature (and wasn't that quite the show last night???) and also, despite the wreck of destroyed tree, there's running water - a reminder of how life goes on despite the damage our earth suffers.
I like to imagine that there are fish in the water, not to mention, so many animals are replenished by the life-giving fluid of the water. Even in moments that seem empty, desolate, and heart-breaking, there's usually (if we look hard enough), a reminder that hope flows, and in this instance, it is the water, a substance of life...
ps: love the new photo of you in your profile...

Your capture of this location reminds me of the complex neuronal network within the brain; subsequent thoughts are part & parcel of (effects of) less on physical attributes and more on the nitty gritty of this neuronal networking..............! Refer image Electrical Circuits of Brain.
