Here we stand
there we went
lots of fish traps
at river's bend
vz-nostalgia: You might find it beneficial to read teh title before wrting a verse, Louis. smile Or maybe you just couldn't find the rhyme for "lake"? smile I could help you with that. Say, William Blake. smile

Is that water or gulf crude oil ? Sadly, the forgotten coast is now imperiled by our addiction.
vz-nostalgia: That's why I go there a week from now, Chris. I hope I enjoy the white sand beaches before they turn black.
Its an amazing and strange sight but was it oil, acid rain or floods that killed the Shame you didnt get the honey!smile
vz-nostalgia: I'm going there a week from now, Ms. Linda. I'll get the honey this time. smile

Sometimes you are so morbid..."Dead Lakes" - Life is abundant, just look toward the back of this picture.
vz-nostalgia: I wish I had a fraction of your optimism, Tony. smile You look at a glass that's half-empty and say the glass is almost full. smile
Beautiful shot of a wonderful area... wish I were there.
vz-nostalgia: I'll be there is a week, Tony. Hope I get there before the black death.

hello Mr Viktor...
strange it natural constructions or human fact..?
i prefer the first photo of the dead lakes...more details...and black and white better...
yes looks like a indian village on water...
thanks for this "curiosité"...
have a good's near sunday for you no? :o)
see you..
vz-nostalgia: Hello, Ms Clo.

Clo: it natural constructions or human fact..?
VZ: Both. The stumps are the natural remnants of cypress trees. The posts are the remnants of an old-gone bridge. smile

Clo: ...and black and white better...
VZ: That's what Natalya said too. smile I think this one works better in color.

Dead Lakes is reported to have been formed when sand bars created by the current of the Apalachicola River blocked the Chipola River. The ensuing high water killed thousands of trees in the floodplain, giving the area its name.

Is it to old Blake
the news we should break?
in that verse no rhyme at stake

Hey diddle diddle
he speaks in a riddle
the answer is there
close inspection will bare

vz-nostalgia: I love it, when folks do their home work. You certainly excels in that, Louis. smile
"Hey diddle diddle..." Hahahaha. I bet, soon you'll start composing simple catchy melodies to accompany your simple verses. smile
Hey Victor, how are you? I'm glad you didn't forget me. smile
vz-nostalgia: You're unforgettable, Ms. Ada. smile
They look like the cypress knees I have seen in coastal North Carolina...
vz-nostalgia: They look like cypress knees because they are, Larry. smile It happens often. Things look like something, because they are that something. We just don't know that. smile

Wow - impressive image!
vz-nostalgia: smile You maybe teh only one who noticed that, Ms. Kay. smile
Intriguing. We have a similar lake here... well, a reservoir actually and when the level drops the ghosts of the trees that were felled when the dam was built come back to life.
vz-nostalgia: I bet those trees hold a treasure, Ian, a ton of fishing lures. smile
How dreadfully beautiful
vz-nostalgia: Dreadfully beautiful... I don't see a juxtaposition of these two words very often, Ms. Jamoula. smile
