Brilliant! Congratulations on the blue!

While you say "the quiet sense of something lost" it strikes me as 'the quiet sense of solitude' enabling one to reconnect with one's self.

There were about three photographers I though of when this challenge came up, and since Zeuszen did not enter, I got 2 of 3. Yay voters.

Nice work Lev. I'm truly impressed when a physicist quotes Tennyson.

A postcard from another era, I can almost smell the fog. Wonderful.

No surprise to me. This had blue written all over it. Terrific job. Your image taught me a few things.

A fine image in itself, most suitable for the challenge, too. Congratulations on the blue.

Fantastic image. This is so subtle I suspect I might have passed by this lovely scene thinking it was too hazy for a decent image. Thanks for the lesson.

Wonderful, Lev, congrats. Send a PM to SC and they will fix the title. For some reason, titles in quotes get lost if you amend the comments field prior to rollover. It happened to me a few weeks ago as well. But how the HELL could you be in Maine and not let us know you were about? Heck, I'd have driven up there just to see ya...

thanks Robert! That is exactly what happened, I added the link to Tennyson's poem right before the rollover. Very strange. I did send a PM to SC right away, I guess they are still working on it :). I am sorry I did not see you, I figured Maine was too far away from Cape Cod, and we had a very hectic schedule (as always :)) to drive to the Cape. Next time, I promise!
