I count myself more fortunate with each passing season to have recourse to these quiet, tree-strewn, untrimmed acres by the water. I would think it a sad commentary on the quality of American life if, with our pecuniary and natural abundance, we could not secure for our generation and those to come the existence of a substantial remnant of a once great endowment of wild and scenic rivers.

A glistening sheet of water. I assume the river has burst its banks here

I live on the Delaware River. The sentiment exressed here are mine also. There is such a peace and contentment as well as beauty to be found in river views.

Here, I would have expected to see some mangroves in the water, not the cypresses. Beautiful composition

Well said, William Anderson, and well shown, you! We don’t see trees in the water like that here where we live!

Such a tranquil appeal this composition has!! I love the size of that trunk. Is this a flooded area of is this tree able to survive in water like this?

this looks to me like a river that has overflowed. I’ve always loved how mature trees that have downward facing boughs seem to be wanting to protect us.
