Very nice photo....

That looks almost rustic.

And so clean! I envy you that. Manila's waterways have become garbage dumping grounds throughout the decades and it will take massive amounts of money and manpower (and discipline!) to get them clean again :(

Love those cloud banks and the stilt-like buildings like so many herons getting their feet wet.

Looks like this could have been shot anytime in the last 100 years. Well done.

@ Hilda - It's probably not as clean as it looks in the photo...but the problem of humans living like pigs is a problem all over the world...

Fortunately, things can be cleaned up. There was a time when you could develop film in Lake Erie...and now, I understand, it's been cleaned up beautifully.

i love the hypereality of this shot. What did you do? The light on the water looks like a movie still.

Rose said...

Oh, my, I like this shot. Love those clouds and I love he whole setting.

Beutiful scene. As lazy as life can possibly get.

Could those cloudes be any fluffier? Do people live here full time or are these weekend fishing shacks?

A quite canal and wooden piers! Love it! This is the kind of atmosphere I want to feel when visiting Florida. (Did I ever mentioned I only know Miami airport? Lol!)

This looks like it should be a movie set. I'm sure those perfect clouds are a backdrop and will be rolled up in time for the next scene.

I like that back bay canal. Very interesting. I wonder what's swimming down there? Thanks for visiting Astoria again. I think there must have been half a sun break at the moment I took the photo of the Lady Washington :)
