The Scarecrow

What you don’t see in this photo is rather comical. Imagine a camera on a tripod sitting on rocks. A plastic bag covering the camera gear. Myself getting drenched by the rain and an acquaintance of mine Stephen standing on the rocks with umbrella trying to cover me and the gear (He got more drenched than I did). Hard to imagine when you see how peaceful this shot is. Needless to say everything got wet despite the best intentions to keep dry.

This boat reminded me of a Scarecrow that doesn’t scare anything away. Obviously…. the birds love sleeping on the wires during the rain.
