My Spring Morning

Sat on a bank of a slow flowing river I watch the sun rise slowly behind the trees, its gentle light diffused by the branches and glisten off the dew laden grass at my feet. The warm mist rises with the sun and the green spring grass comes into focus. The trickle of water as it moves by fills my ears while birds sing a melody is chorus with the sound and only the beat of my heart and breath keeps tempo. As the warmth starts to wash over me I wake and as I do I smile, I am at peace, this is my spring morning, this is my country, this is my life.

This took a lot of patience - love the drops being almost-but-not-quite focused, and the crispness of the reflection with the starkness of the sky. Wonder how it'd look with some fluffy clouds?
 
beatiful words to explain and must say a very contended person

Mr. Shaw you are a very happy and lucky man. I think adding the blue Danube to the sounds you heard and thinking about the poor and needy will make you much happier.
 
So beautiful so tranquil.
 
wow.. i never thought this pics are just shot.. by camera...
 
I wish i can wake up 1 day ad fund my self in ur country.lovly pic 
 
+Mike Shaw The colors in this photo are amazing!
I love that the light in the sky is hazy and undefined. It provides an aura around the tree and a general sense of happiness and warmth. But when you look into the reflection, everything becomes clear. It's no less magnificent, just in a different way.
When we see ourselves reflected in other people, or them reflected in us, often we see things that were hazy and undefined become clear.
Just beautiful!! :D
 
I photo providing true focus to one persons soul. Great piece of writing.
 
natures power ,very cool photo to me ,gives peace of mind
 
Such a beautiful place and beautiful words.All PRAISE BE TO ALLAH (THE ONE AND ONLY)

"I am at peace." THAT is the best part of what we do +Mike Shaw. To get out, alone, before the world awakens, and just breathe. Then silently, slowly even, begin to capture the beauty that is this world we live in. Well done my friend.
 
Thank you Mike great start to my day, I live for times like this. Allan

Profound beauty captured by your soul, your skills, your love of our world. If only the masses saw the world the way you do. Perhaps there would be less hate and less war. Show your work around the world. Inspire the awe and maybe more respect of Mother Nature will reign. And that includes the human.
 
Kamera sa a maleu!!   Mr. Shaw you have a danm good eye!! your trial on patience does pay off !! this is just.... wow.....
 
Mike, I love your  pictures (landscape, nature ones particularly), if I want to get a high quality download of these pictures, how do I go about it? Can you please provide a link? If I save your pictures it , saves as a jpg. Thanks! - Vijay
