The Flash of Recognition

Every once in a while I see something that stops me in my tracks, and I realize that I am looking at something that is extraordinary, a recognition that I am looking at something I have never seen before.  That was the case today.  First I noticed the mirror-smooth water and then the dark black rocks and then the smooth black curve of the sandbar.  Something in me responded to that and I realized that I had something very special to work with.  This photograph is the result.  For me, this is a very unusual landscape.

Beautiful and serene. I am glad you mentioned that it was a sandbar as it seems so high and smooth. Not what I would have expected.

I'm not a huge fan of "dark" pictures but I really like this one. Would never have known that it is a sandbar. bsk
