The Sea's Milky Way


From high up on a cruise ship, I have understood the magnetism of the sea for high-divers.

This is for Tracy/Lurch and all the rest of you who love the water!

You captured the energy of the water really well and the colors are stunning!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Jewlya!
The movement hypnotises you and draws you in. Great colour to the sea, we would never see it anywhere near this colour in Liverpool, muddy brown is all we can aspire to.
Ginnie Hart: It is totally hypnotic, Les, let me tell you! The more I stared, the more I wanted to dive right in!
Lovely colours Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Sesan!
Lovely colours. very rare capture. very well done. Like it very much.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Gishan.
I've just been looking at the various astronomy sites after seeing Comet Holmes with my binoculars. This photo links the mysterious beauty of sea and universe very well.
Ginnie Hart: There really is a vastness to the ocean, Patushka. As above, so below! Thanks.

This to me is pure heaven, you know how to make my day(THANK YOU). wink
The water is calling me, I can feel it's spirit and energy through your shot.
Only another 8 weeks and I can hopfully dive again.

You have captured my heaven(milky way) beautifully.smile THANKS for thinking of MEtongue
Ginnie Hart: I knew you'd feel this, Tracy. It is so very hypnotizing to stare at the water and feel it drawing you to itself. Yay for you that you'll be able to dive in another 2 months. Hang in there. And thanks. I love making your day. smile

Works...beautifully!
I spend a lot of time gazing at the wake on the few occasions I find myself aboard biggish ships.
Exquisite forms appear in the chaos of the churned water.
Gorgeous framing too, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I have taken photos of the wake from our 4 cruises, Ray, but these from the side of the ship are much more intriguing to me, especially at the edges of the churn. It really is quite mesmerizing and hypnotic. Thanks.

the blue is so cool looking. I envy you for having gone on a cruise.
Ginnie Hart: I love cruises, Rags, and feel very fortunate to have been on 4 of them in my lifetime (last 10 years). Maybe you can go some day? Thanks.

It's calling you, Ginnie. Do you have the will to resist?
Ginnie Hart: You know, Viktor, I really HAVE understood the lure for high divers! It's totally hypnotic! Whether I'd ever have the guts to do it in the right situation is another thing altogether! smile Thanks.

I can see, hear, smell, fell the energy of the element water- gorgeous and making a little anxious, too ! (How little is the human being against the sea!) Nice framing!
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Philine. One feels like but a speck against that vastness! It's awesome. Thanks.
Ginnie, I have just had a look back through your archive, and I can see that since you got the dSLR your photography which was good to start with, has become so much more creative. Maybe it's the processing too, but it looks great.
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling SC and all of YOU have made the difference in my photography, Chris. I think the camera maybe doesn't matter that much. However, when using the bigger/better camera, maybe there is a subconscious "need" to do it better? smile Thanks for your very kind comment.
Come on Ginnie, we all know that that is your first jacuzzi of the day!richardsmile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Don't I wish. smile Thanks, Richard.

Greta shot and nice frame !! I thought it was the sky at first (fireworks of sorts !!)
Ginnie Hart: As above, so below, Shakara! I really think that's true, more than we realize! Thanks.
Mesmerising! The colour is so good, and I love the title. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Roz. smile

a nice study in light and dark; the blue tones are lovely.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for your comment, David.
Lovely colours, but also an evocation of the ocean's danger (and hence attraction) ;o)
Ginnie Hart: So very true, Mike. I wonder how many have been lured into her snare without understanding the danger! Thanks.
Great hue of green.
Ginnie Hart: Green, blue, turquoise. So many colors, so little time. Thanks, Wim.

The blue/green color looks fab Ginnie, and the frame brings out the color even more.
Abstract and beautiful
Ginnie Hart: You're so very kind. Thanks, Magnus.

Glad you're back!!! (I've seen your pictures with José...hope you had a wonderful time)
I liked the colours, I liked the diagonal of darkness, I liked the liquid movement and the sense of life coming from your fantastic picture, but, above all...I liked the title. You were truly inspired! smile
Ginnie Hart: It's good to be back after a fabulous time, Lina. And thank you for your wonderful words.

I'm a waterbaby too and find it hard to live landlocked. Your photo is so soothing and in many ways very mysterious.
Ginnie Hart: Soothing and mysterious go well together, Kathryn. Thank you for your words.
Nice colours Ginnie and I like the sense of movement.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe it's the movement that is most hypnotizing, Bernie. Thanks.
It enchants the water to me! Precious colors! But for my taste, I think that the frame is too wide and bothers at the time of enjoying the photo!
Ginnie Hart: So sorry the frame is too wide for you, José Angel. I'll have to warn you the next time. smile But thanks for your comment anyway.

Deep sea or deep space? Beautiful but deadly - lovely capture Ginnie. The colours are superb and a good intoduction to life at sea. David.
Ginnie Hart: Beautiful but deadly is right, David. One learns to respect the sea while on a cruise! Thanks.

This is very pretty, but I still don't want to dive in from this high up smile
Ginnie Hart: I would never think I'd want to either, Martin, but I declare--it really IS hypnotizing! Thanks.
Beautiful colours Ginnie - it looks like some sort of molten glass.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ingrid.

Wow Ginnie, love the colours also the framing, please can you show me how to to that in a few weeks?
Hope nobody jumped overboard grin
Ginnie Hart: Anything for you, Astrid. smile I didn't hear of anyone jumping overboard on our cruise but apparently it does happen. Man! That would be so easy to do and how could anyone find them! Thanks.
Great colour Ginnie, the water is alive with energy.
Ginnie Hart: Yes it is, Bill. Thanks.
Lovely abstraction and colour and your border sets it off perfectly.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Jose-Ann.

This is not your standard Ginnie, but even so - excellent picture, composition and contrasts in colour.

What a lovely abstract. So much power, and the color of that aqua. Wow.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe one of these cruises someday we can get you and Don to go with us! smile Wouldn't THAT be fun!!!
Ginnie,

This is such a lovely shot. Reminds me of when I was on vacation in Mexico and I spent hours on the beach listen to the waves. Great composition.
Ginnie Hart: I just love to watch and listen to the waves, ChiChi. Thanks.
Like the colours and since I'm not a border fan I must give you a thumb up for your choice of a border....here it is good imho
Ginnie Hart: So glad this one meets your approval, Alsel. smile Thanks.
Wow,
This is a really cool pic.
The colours are quite appetising to the eye.
Nice smile
Ginnie Hart: Wow. You really backtracked far for this image, Lee. Thank you kindly!
Your Welcome smile
