Firstly sorry Kate that I missed thanking you on a few shots you commented on,this included.When the very late light is like this on a nearly flat river,I wait for a bigger river ferry to pass by,knowing it will throw up some smaller waves.The waves albeit small add some blue and form to the reddish river.Its very fascinating but very short lived.Some evenings a ferry dose not pass,and I think I should hire a ferry just to pass by at the right time! Thanks Kate. #3105347

I just love the simplicity of this. Knowing you were standing there just waiting for the right moment makes it even more impressive. I would love to put a link to this on one of Mary's blogs which is about simplicity and complexity if that's alright by you? #3105568

Thanks Jenny and Mary for your nice comments which are most appreciated.No problems with the link Mary,I have mentioned this to Kate.It was very calm tonight on the river near sunset,which is perfect conditions,but no ferry to send up some waves...my ship did not come in this evening! #3118888

With 11 mins to sunset(behind the camera),the very calm river is coloured orange,except when a larger river ferry goes past.The waves set up by the ferry bring in some blue small waves to the orange river.A very ephemeral effect,but well worth waiting for.Swan River,Perth,Western Australia. 18July,2006.5.21PM
