Norway 2011



Clear waters flow yet still
rising and falling dependent on heavenly precipitation
- touching your very soul again



Early dew grips the kernel
swelled to ripeness, bowed after the breeze
flowing towards a fruitful bounty



The glint of metal chariots
carrying the selected weapons, secure and readied
to do battle with Salar



Lightly coiled upon the drum
silent refinement of line, balanced to graphite
draws eyes to the fly



Poised sharpness dressed for translucence
of light playing with fickle colours swept
together with leaders to tense



Rocks worn smoothe with time
passing waters ripple by deceptive in gentility
and grace our wonderful world

......

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles (spey rods). Doug Larson

part II



Plying the water, sweeping across
known lies and unknown depths in anticipation
cannot be imagined - be there!!



The draw of line, gently
at first, then explodes the power play
graphite creaking into test mode



Boil and sparkle, water alive
kicking for freedom above sun-dappled boulders
clearly defined task at hand



Sufficiently exhausted, resting in shallows
water world but moments away, briefest exposure
but who's looking at who?



Full glory of nature's wonder
scanning the route home, seconds to go
returned to the upstream journey



Light playing, reminiscent glow fading
fast over the horizon, but ominous warning
of the morrow to come

..journey continued...



Moonlight playing over swirling water
dappled reflections bouncing off an unseen world
but light enough - so fish!!



Breaking the fast is natural
healthy balance of foods - excludes the coffee!
A man's gotta eat -- No??



Shroud of darkness giving way
to morning embers breaking through fluffy reminders
over the newly awakening stream



Stout of body shortly applied
armed to the rear, attractors to head
translucence comes alive in water



The cast snakes over lies
potentially occupied; streaming colours of passing fly
raise leviathons from the deep



Tempted by the flowing fibres
now temporarily restrained to allow awesome appreciation
of nature's wild silvery magnificence

.....

and on...



Guiltily gazing upon the morsel
of feathers & fur, sharpness its downfall
moments later returned to migrate



Nature's change merciless in appearance
fills the morning sky with darkness above
ready to burst forth momentarily



Not dissuaded by heavenly threats
the task at hand clearly defined; wet
above and below broken surfaces



Mist merging with cloud almost
unbroken over calming liquid, the Salar terrain
promising to defy any forecast



Giving way to broken clouds
blue breaking through to restore the calm
- another day on the river



Gently treading between vibrant stamens
almost dancing; taking nectar and passive pollen
reflecting nature's balance and bounty
