here it is, the marvel of today, or even this week. incredibly cinematographic scene, the standing figure could be a monk from medieval ages, or a ghost, as you state well in the title. the branches add extra mystery, like we are watching the scene, hiding behind them.
ps: why don't you upload more, dear isa? i miss a lot your photos on TE. i'm not a FB user, you know, and i can only see them here.

Stunning use of B&W and high contrasts that give a mystical mood to the picture. The boat seems to float on the air ! Maybe it is too much centered in the framing but I like the strange atmosphere.

This image is so poetic, I just love the mood. The branches make a great framing device for the boat and it's mysterious occupants. Nice.

There you are again: I was getting worried you'd left us! And you've returned with a seriously gorgeous high-key monochrome (you may remember my penchant for b/w!) The mist has helped keep the composition simple; the foreground tree adds a partial frame; the person standing in the boat is probably just fishing, but he looks like Max Schreck's Nosferatu! Which adds a mysterious quality to an already good photograph, and suggests a story...

You rarely show your photos lately. Very creative, romantic picture. Thanks to fog we do not see were water and and air begins, so this boat seems to fly in the air. Very strange looking person who stays in a boat, looks rather like a monk. Beautiful reflections, excellent black and white image. Also nice a poem as a note, fits very well.
