Thematic Photography - Emptiness

Emptiness may be in the eye of the beholder; it depends on what you see or don't see in the shot.

Empty dock at Oxford Lakes, Michigan
The shot of the dock was taken for a court case relating to an accident at the site.

On a different occasion a harbour may look empty too.

Whitby Harbour, North Yorkshire - 2008
But for atmospheric emptiness it would be hard to beat this shot of Skye taken in 1957.

Skye, from Raasay
Despite the emptiness theme I'm sure you will find plenty more to admire at Carmi's Thematic-photographic-281.

You sure show how emptiness can also be so very lovely at the same time!

I don't know about all the other lakes but Lake Michigan is frozen over more than 80%. It is cold on the lake and the boats are not moving. Great photos.

Lovely pics Bob. Interesting too. Must get myself up to Yorkshire sometime.

Beautiful. The empty docks and Whitby Harbour really appeal to me.

Great shots of harbours/quays. So still and tranquil. And Skye is lovely - we went not long after you - still the same then!

I found that picture of Whitby intriguing, Bob, and I looked it up.

Empty, yet so much going on in each of these scenes. I love how you view the world, Bob, and you never fail to inspire me in my own shooting.
