Ne-mast-e Greetings To A New Day by 


The title is a play on the masts of the boats and the greeting “nemaste”. Here is a quote from Wikipedia, "Namaste is derived from Sanskrit and is a combination of two words, “Namaḥ” and “te” (a shortened variant of “tubhyam”). Namaḥ means ‘bow’, ‘obeisance’, ‘reverential salutation’ or ‘adoration’2 and te means ‘to you’ (dative case of ‘you’). Therefore, Namaste literally means “bow to you” translated as “I bow to you”."

The boats bob on the light swells as if bowing to the sun as it rises.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

    Most peaceful scene

  • Certain times of the day (barring storms, of course) are peaceful, and this is maybe an hour after the awesome sunrise – everything settled in to a quiet coming to awareness. Thank you for the nice comment, Kala:>)
