Still Waters.

The peace and quiet along the river towpath.
Reflections on an almost still lake.
A Tuftie only makes a tiny ripple.
Even the Dabchick doesn't make waves.
And then along comes the heavyweight creating a bow wave and plenty of ripples.

PJB Update: After weeks of apparent brain inactivity there have been recent signs during the regular family visits and confirmed by his Nurses that PJB may be recognising sounds and his eyes appear to follow some movements around him. It is still too early to really understand where this may lead but perhaps the words and prayers will produce even more ripples.  FAB.


  1. Spectacular shots with such rich color and depth.

  2. Leave it to the heavy-weight to stir things up a little. :-) I need a towel for my eyes...


  3. Your photos are great as always. The Swan is wonderful-an love the Header! Your brother is in my prayers.

  4. The dabchick photo that you made your new banner photo is really something special.

  5. Wonderful shots! Where I live on the West Coast of Canada, we have a wide variety of water birds to photograph, and I do so as often as I can...:)

  6. ...beautiful. I love the little Dabchick (never heard that name before--it has a wonderful sound to it). The little chick makes a wonderful header as well!

  7. Nice scenes Frank and the Dabchick shot and new header are just great.

  8. I can feel the calm...don't you just love the reflecting cattails and grasses on the waters'surface? Great, love, love the Swan capture. Take Care, Frank.

  9. Love the duck's reflection...all the photos are stupendous.

    My Watery photos are about the 'disaster area' in town during a day long rainstorm. Click Here if you'd care to join me today with your visit.

  10. Hi Frank...real cute post with very nice swimmers photos.
    Love the butt shot of the Dabchick and it makes a nice header!!
    The first photos has a nice feeling of calmness to it to!!

  11. Peaceful was the first thing that came to mind before I scrolled down to your caption! Lovely photos as always, Frank and a great new header.

    I do hope things progress favourably for your brother.

  12. Hi Everyone. Thanks again for your visits and complimentary comments. I'm delighted that the new header has your approval.
    BTW the original derivation of dab-chick was probably 'dipping duck'.

    I'm way behind on my reading list but I'll get around to you all as soon as possible. Cheers FAB.

  13. Lovely photos of the stillness. I hope your brother continues to improve and will pray for him.


I hope you enjoyed your visit and I always appreciate your comments and feedback.
