Halifax River from Holly Hill Shore

“What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn’t have any doubt—it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn’t want to go anywhere else.”
Hal Boyle

I think I would like to have a rowboat. I have always loved the water – especially lakes, rivers and streams. Yet, I don’t want nor need the hassle of a “real boat”. And there is something attractive about the memory and idea of just floating along, unencumbered by purpose, expectations or time.

There are so many lakes and streams in the area waiting to offer themselves as photographic subjects. The problem is that viewing and photographing them solely from the perspective of the shore tells only part of their story. It’s like hearing only one side of a telephone conversation: you’re left to assume so much about the other side. So often our assumptions are wrong. I can’t help but wonder what I could see from the other side.

Because of its width, the embedded view of this photo is rather small. Click on the image to get a better, enlarged view (as always).
