If you think I'm gonna mess with this great shot you're SO wrong.

BEAUTIFUL!

My question is where did you find a lone Mangrove? Mostly they grow so thick you can't get through them.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Mangrove in Skinny

Well as you remember of course, late 70's, early 80's devestated the mangrove population but they have made a strong come back. After leaving the Titusville causeway headed east, the refuge areas on both sides of the rode holds some skinny water and lots of these nice single mangroves.

They intriuqe me beause the resemble to me that baobob tree talked about so fondly in the great Exupery novel "The Litle Prince."

Don't be afraid to lay your magic hands upon it buddy, that's why it's there.

Ah! The African Baobob tree, (the tree of life). Have you seen the one they built at Animal Kingdom that has the carved animals? I believe they also have some real ones also.

When I saw this one earlier, I thought I it was too wonderful a silhouette and couldn't be improved upon as well Steve; but now decided I would play.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Mangrove in Skinny

lroll,
beautiful.........

STEVE, you are an amazing artist and I love collaboration. Some artist consider collaboration the bastardazation of the image, I consider it an honor if someone tries to improve upon my theme.

As for the Baobob my friend. I almost spoke to it but did not wish to seem foolish. I have another favorite book and favorite author. I read the short, supposed childrens book at least once a year for some new form of enlightenment. If you have not, tis time to begin. "The Little Prince" by Exuper should speak of your lovely Baobob.

You did well, I still have to come up with something to do it justice.

Right now I am still working on it in my head as to just what it will be.

Ok, I tried one after much trial and error. Not as happy with it as I am sure Sweetlight was when he first photographed it.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Mangrove in Skinny

When Chris first posted this image I had the same reaction as Steve, "If you think I'm gonna mess with this great shot you're SO wrong. BEAUTIFUL!"
Unfortunately, I then moved on without sending flowers of praise for this beautiful image.

Albeit a little late I shall attempt to rectify that situation now..
Chris, Outstanding Image! A Very Fine Piece Of Work! Awesome looking picture, indeed!

As a side note.. Your Flickr pages contain an impressive body of work!

Lyle and Steve, I hate to be the bearer of bad news; but, guys in my opinion your efforts pale compared to the original
