Inflatable Ready To GoAn inflatable tender ready and waiting in the early morning




There is something about an inflatable boat that legitimizes the term "maritime adventure". It may be that we all saw Jacques Cousteau using this type of vessel for years in books and on television.

There is something to the thought of adventure, exploration, and the inflatable tender. They are a new type of thoroughbred. They always look as if they are ready to go, even in the paddock. They are our chariots to expanding our world. In this case, they lead to adventures on Point Judith Pond, Rhode Island Sound, and beyond.

When I see a duck, I cannot help myself. I must go see it.

Picking our children up from Summer Strings in Peace Dale, there is a stream with a little bridge on the green. The stream was once a feeder to a mill across the street. But now, by the stone guild, ducks swim and find sustenance.

The ducks swim in the moving stream. They quack in soft voices in the diminishing late daylight. I snap a few shots and then give them their privacy to retire to their hidden nest.

Lakeside Peace At SunsetAs the summer sun makes its descent, peace falls on the lake




A summer evening at the lake melts into sunshine and clouds. The bright light dissolves into reflections and silhouettes. And as the light recesses in the distant clouds, the entire body relaxes.

Quiet Marina MorningA quiet, peaceful morning at the marina on Point Judith Pond




There is nothing like the early morning at a marina. The dew starts rising as mist in the kiss of the morning sunshine. The illumination of the boats achieves a unique glow. This is the quiet, contemplative moment before the maritime adventures begin.

Classic Mixed With ModernClassic and modern lines mix at the docks in Apponaug Cove




My background consists of a lifetime on the water and an engineer's education. Those two are not opposed. As a matter of fact, they have often complemented one another.

Walking among the boats in Apponaug, one sees where maritime and engineering collide. There is a bevy of designs made manifest. There are the classics with graceful lines. There are sharp-featured purpose-built modern boats. There are burly working boats. There are boats built for leisure.

This is where culture meets science and design. It is all elegant and in its own way, serene.

Woodsy Trail ReflectionsReflections and translucency on the Rome Point Trail




Walking the trail back from Rome Point we notice a pool of water. It's the day after a plentiful spring rain, so it is not a surprise that the pool has gathered near the trail.

There is more to the pool. In the midday sun, it reflects and shows is translucent all in one. Mirrored shapes of vines form. The growth of spring repeats in its verdancy.

And in delving into the reflection, we find the beauty of spring. Monet was on to something.

The first bee in the first budding blossom of spring

I know that I have said this before, but my relationship with bees and insects has evolved. Since embarking on this photographic journey, I am more appreciative of these creatures. I am most likely more respectful too.

We all seem to start out in life with people warning us of all insects. We saw this with our own sons. Teachers who are squeamish at childlike curiosity about insects. People who teach children that insects are things to avoid. They are

Passing Jerusalem by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery

Posted By MadeFromRI on Photography

https://www.madefromrigallery.com - I have always had a fascination with vessels in motion. Photographing them in series as they pass or perform a maneuver is something special to me. The first time I did this, I was ten years of age. It was the M/V Island Queen with my father as captain backing out of the pier in Massachusetts's Falmouth Harbor. It is an unusual maneuver and takes a certain skill due to the pier's angle, the bow overhang, and the harbor shape. The engines must assist by backing on one engine and pushing ahead on the other. There is some rumbling involved due to natural cavitation beneath the vessel. This causes some back eddies as the vessel turns and the visual results are fascinating.

When I head out to photograph, I often don't know what I am going to find. I have an idea, of course, but I don't know for certain. This is why I like the rocky shore. It is deceiving and there is always something to see.

The rocky shore is deceiving because always looks calm. As one observes, the swells roll in, they have to work their way through rocky apertures. The waves speed up and pour through the rock. The effect is mesmerizing and beautiful.

The actual principle is the "Bernoulli Principle". In Hydrodamica, 1738, Daniel Bernoulli explained that the speed of the fluid occurs sim

Tulips were not always multi-colored. A virus caused many colors to form in tulips; the tulip breaking virus (TTBV). There are two varieties of the virus. These are the mild tulip breaking virus (MTBV) and the severe tulip breaking virus (STBC).

The virus infects the bulb causing the cultivar to "break" its lock on a single color. This results in intricate bars, stripes, streaks, featherings or flame-like on the petals.

Today, many of the colors are sought out through cultivation. There are few "broken" variet
