St Martin's by Ken Tobias
This delightful landscape work by Ken Tobias, creates a sense of soltitude. The picture covers such a vast panorama of sea and distant land that I cannot help but feel a sense of diminution. The recognition of one's finiteness against the vastness of earth and sky creates for me a sense of awe at the beauty of the earth.
Ken choses his colours well. The blues and the whites of the sky ties into the reflection of the water below and the colour of the sea bottom and the illuminative warmth of the headland and the distant blue horizon take me back to the times when I have walked the shores of the Bay of Fundy, with my camera in hand.
