It's a shame this Forum has deteriorated to this nonsense.:( But it's the bilge and I suppose it's normal.:rolleyes: I'd rather be out sailing but for the foulness of the day.

Some body should start a Marine art thread or something constructive.:)

Aye tis a foul day, reminds me of this painting

Martin Johnson Heade (18191904)

Approaching Thunder Storm, 1859

Oil on canvas; 28 x 44 in. (71.1 x 111.8 cm)



Description



Heade became a good friend of the acclaimed landscape painter Frederic Church (18261900), but he worked on the periphery of the Hudson River School. He specialized not in dramatic wilderness subjects, as many of the school did, but preferred more prosaic marshlands and coastal settings. Even when he painted storms, as here, he portrayed not the actual tempest, but its tense preamble of blackening sky and eerily illumined terrain. This painting was based on a sketch of an approaching storm that Heade witnessed on Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay about 1858. The image became the basis for a more elaborate and synthetic version of the subject painted in 1868 (Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth, Texas).

The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has quite a collection of paintings by Heade. Some years ago they had an exhibit made up of paintings from their own collection. I bought a print of "Approaching Storm Near Newport". Heade painted the salt marshes near Ipswitch, Massachusetts also.

All sailboats are generally the same. As are women.

A profound statement.

I've seen that spot in Gros Morne in New Foundland in person and it was quite stunning. The notch in the ridge in the center of the picture is a "hanging valley." One valley intersects another at a right angle, but the intersecting valley's floor is several hundred feet above the floor of the other valley. When I saw it we could look down on them from the road and the hanging valley and one below were both filled with fog.

Nice post there, MMD.

I'm pleased to present these images of my neighbour province - it is one of my favourite places in the world that I've travelled, and peopled by the most generous and friendly people I've ever encountered.

Joe (CSOH)...I dunno where that last photo that you posted is, but it looks exactly like a fiord on the western coast of Iceland near Akreness......there's a whaling station there...I made the mistake of sailing in...no engine...and with the wind shifts nearly impossible to sail out......but absolutely beautiful inside.....

Chuck, it is a photo looking east into Western Brook Pond in Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland. It is a glacially-formed fjord that became land-locked when the foreshore rebounded after the glaciers of the last ice age receded. It is now completely fresh water. You can hike into the foot of the lake (about a 1/2-hr walk) then take a boat tour into the fjord, where you can then hike some seriously wilderness trails into the upland plateaus of the Long Range Mountains. It's truly a spectacular place, very reminiscent of the coast around Bergen, but at about 1/4 of the elevations.

Here's another photo of the area, this one of taken from the head of Western Brook Pond, looking west, by Rolf Hicker:
