I tread lightly so as not to disturb the tranquility that envelopes this lone fisherman. He has found a hushed location within the nature preserve in Rockwood Ontario, and I interlope with lens and an equal appreciation for what we are blessed to know in this stillness.

@Ronnie 2¢: Indeed, and I hope he caught something for the frying pan.

Heaven on Earth is close to this... Love the silence sensation, its music, and the soothing feel you respected by your discretion, like an animal walking in his back as discreetly as possible. Superb black of the trunks standing up like his bodyguards... Quiet is beautiful... Peaceful week-end to U, Rick.

I think the B&W enhances the mood of quiet and peace. A lovely story captured here.
