Hello everyone. Welcome to my sixteenth installment of my creative world that I call Resonance Reflection Photography. My name is Marcel Comeau, and I'm a landscape photographer based in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Each week I post my work online for the world to see and enjoy. This week's photo was taken out by Nanaimo Lakes. As I was exploring this new area, I couldn't help but enjoy the view of the river that goes from one lake to another. The day had overcast, and there was no wind which made the water calm. One of the first things I noticed from the image was the reflection of the trees on each side of the river and the beautiful lines they were creating. The sound of the streaming river was soft and overall gave off a peaceful atmosphere to work in. As I gazed at the landscape that surrounded me, I couldn't help but think of who else took the time and looked at this natural feature before me. The different walks of life that have passed by or potentially lived and died here. It's incredible to think that many areas we would think wouldn't retain any inherent value when in fact could have a vast history we just don't know about. I also think about the possible lessons that could be taken away from the individuals that wandered throughout these vast lands. What could they teach us? What value could they provide the future generations? As I packed up my gear, I took one last look at the area and continued on my journey while capturing a memory for other explorers to experience. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen to me, and I hope to hear from you soon. Take care.
