But you and Jane still have each other! That is one of the biggest blessings of all. Not only do you have wonderful memories of your wilderness but you have all these marvelous pictures to gaze upon. Beautiful scene, a Simon and Garfunkle favorite - how much nostalgia can I take in one day?

Excellent landscape, very good combination of foggy forest in the BG and a lake in the front creating a very beautiful and interesting view.

I got some caching up to do.I just got back from visiting family and freezing my ... off in Wisconsin. It was fine growing up in it but don't seem to like it as much any more. I really like this scene you have posted.Great composition with the misty foggy atmosphere in the hills. Nice color in this wonderful landscape. TFS

A fine river scene with pleasant greeneries Bob, and yes, that all encompassing foggy weather... It looks good in such a scene, I know, but I've been in such weather conditions many times in the eastern Black Sea region of Anatolia, that dampnes permeates everything and everywhere, till you feel the cold in your bones... Well, maybe it is different in your wilderness Bob, it sure looks perfectly exposed and composed on my screen!

Congratulations not only by the beautiful image but also for the note.

This picture of yours reminds me of a place here in Orissa that is in Koraput District in the south west of Orissa. The view is very similar in the rainy season here. Very well composed with lovely view. Thanks a lot for sharing.

This is a very fine landskape photo. I like the way you have sharply shown the trees in the first plane of the image. Then the waves of fog define other planes of the image developing and giving depth. Water in front and fogy sky in the background have something in common so that forest between is only a small psrt of the circle.
Thank you for sharing,

Thank you for this moving look at your life Bob, the words of Simon and Garfunkel, and this wonderful picture from your home valley.
This looks so very much like the Waipa River valley where I lved in the house at Pirongia with my ex-wife and children.
That too seems like a lifetime ago now, although it was only just under 4 years ago that we left there. So much has changed since.
Its something I suppose to at least still have the photographs, and the memories.
Thanks for sharing his.

you stll miss the time you spent in the wilderness and your love for it reflects in your images and your notes too, this is asuch a fine image, looks as if someone has painted a beautiful scenery out of imagination, the layers look so beautiful well composed shot,
there is so much to learn from you as a photographer, as a writer and above all as a human being, i feel sorry when i miss your posts and glad when you post something like this,
well done bob,
tfs & regards

Very fine work.

I can't say much... it's so difficult to pack emotions in words. It's touching and delicate. The text and the notes are complementary and harmonic. Although I can feel some sadness in your words, I believe that harmony is very important to you and that your new environment does not spend it that much. Maybe the souvenirs and pictures like this one can help you to find the "inner" harmony...
That's what I wish you...

A beautiful capture of this river valley.
The mist adds atmosphere.
The diagonal flow of the hills has nice repetition,
Excellent composition from a well thought out POV.
