the sailor by graemestevens

the sailor

What would you be if the waves set you free
And the wind in your hair brought you sailing to me
Tied up on the shore would you weary no more?
When will it be, when will it be
What would I be if a hurricane came
Would I be clever, would I be shamed
Would I lie helpless, cast up on the flames
What will I be, what will I be
I will be here forever
Till the river runs into the sea
I will always be silent
And hold my head up
Till we will be sailors no more
(Big Country, Sailor)

Cool perspective. That piece of driftwood is making a point

Whoa! I am not sure which do i like the most: the color palette, the composition, the light, the perspective, the idea, the details. I think it's all of these, as a whole in this sensational photograph.

Stunner (you and the picture). Nice work.

POV and subject draws one into this image. A beautifully atmospheric scene.

All kinds of fave going on here - for the evocative photo as well as the song.

Excellent as always. Perfect POV

I love this image; the rocks, the driftwood (that has a story we'll never hear), the power of the sea, the vastness of the moody sky. What a pic! And great poetry to go with it.

I love that it looks like a sea creature... a great seascape with intriguing foreground interest.

The strength of this piece of driftwood is nicely contradicted by the subdued tones.

@joysabin Thanks very much :)
@vignouse There is that - it reminded me of a keel, but I see the sea creature as well...
@bkbinthecity Thanks very much :)
