sense of scale from the bones to the hills is really disorienting, a picture that gets better the longer you look at it.
Thank you so much everybody for your kind words and thoughts!!!! Just like people around the world and some, so far away, are becoming members of my familly!
Can see me losing the race to keep my dog from rolling in it or trying to scarf it down...And the aroma remenicent of childhood walks along the beaches of Lake Huron and coming across such a prize.
Memento mori. It always ends badly, in that every living creature will die eventually.
The photographer's choices of a long shutter speed, a wide-angle view, a deep depth of field, and, most essentially, B&W rather than colour, all contribute to this photo's invocation of primordial elements of nature, and make this earth seem like a melancholy, desolate planet.
A wonderful shot with a Thought... The best part is complete skeleton, with Eye and nostrils are visible
I don't feel sad, it is serene to me. . the skeleton does make your mind go to death but somehow it is a peaceful feeling, reminding you that time goes on.
@Shanna Jones Totally agree with you
Nice balance, makes you think of what is going on with the environment, the beauty of it is deceptive!
I grew up on the American side of the St. Lawrence. It's a beautiful river, but everything it takes winds up on the shore at some point. That's a great pic, portrays beauty, life, and the last ripple of death.
This photograph evoked sadness in me, seems to be deserted and abandoned there, lonely and quiet. The black and white makes it all stand out even more, it is beautiful though.

Wow...the life and death. Water is life....correct. The duality is in this this photograph. Great job
I think it's out of Quebec city. This look like St-Vallier. 30 minutes out of Québec city on the south shore of St. Lawrence river. Everyone should go there in october. It's a very wonderful country with falls colors and the hundred of thousands Snow Geese. Cause I live there :)
It's very cool to see a picture on N.G. shot of the day, made in the city where I live!
I like the mix of the waves and the surprisingly big fish squeleton in front. Nice shot.
