Focus in a Monet Setting

 My favourite canal provided a serene mood for my slice through the water today.
This peaceful scene shows you what we experienced as we followed the dirt road along the water's edge.
Plunge...aim...and capture.
I am working on, if not perfected, my delivery.
How about you?
 It's a process,
one that I focus on daily.


  1. great photos...what a nice place..

  2. Sophie, that water looks so nice and cool! Such a lovely setting!

    Ron, you got that splash shot, the first time, right?

    We're sitting here in the heat...

  3. your pictures are always so awesome. Mom has such a hard time taking clear pictures when there is movement. What settings do you use
    Benny & Lily

  4. So pretty!
    Our Mickey is not a natural water puppy like you, Miss Sophie. Bet you could show him it's fun!

  5. Photography's magic touches us all differently
    Concering myself....I cannot think of any words to describe the feeling that comes over me as I look at these photos.
    Perfection and peace,, is all I can think of.
    How beautiful

  6. OHHHHHHHHHHHHH,......MONET would turn around in his heavenly bed, my dear Ron; if he could only see this MASTERPIECE of this truly magnificient inspiring peaceful scenes....: LIGHT & GREENS & WATER & AIR & SOPHIE.......: MERVEILLEUX!!!!!!!

  13. Straight as an arrow towards the target, my young friend. You are the most talented ball chaser I have ever seen, especially in the water. And, the places where you do your practicing are lovely beyond compare.

  14. Hey Sophie!
    Wow, what a pretty place to go swimmie. Nice change of pace from the open ocean. Love the ripples and your wake! I'd say you have this perfected, but it's well worth doing every day!! BOL

    Here in the states we're heading into a holiday weekend. I'm wondering if we're saying hello to autumn or goodbye to summer.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
