Time for a landscape. Or two.

So time to get to that landscape assignment.

Yesterday was, of course, the day I went off to capture such a thing and then found all sorts of other marvelous images.  I did get a landscape too though, cropped it and got it ready, but thought I would post it next day as three posts in one day seemed excessive.  Well, I am ever so pleased that I waited, as the ice from Thursday night’s storm is still encasing things and on my way to work what do I see, but the most beautiful glass, almost gold, sailboats.  Quality-wise, the picture may not be the best as the boats are stored across the harbour and I had to crop quite a bit off to get them to really stand out.  I am happy all the same.

And here is my original landscape taken at the bottom of my street.  I am actually very proud of this one as I do not usually take good landscape shots.  I find they’re usually anaemic and, well, dinky, when they should be impressive and grand.  This one though I think gives an idea of expanse.  Making it extra long helps.  And I like the way the truck anchors it in the one side.
