Think that this image 'writes' its own narrative.

It's my weekly entry for the Wednesday B&W Challenge and probably my entry for the current 'Black & White/Mono' contest as well.

I agree with Tiggs. Excellent photograph of this couple contemplating married life. The B&W really adds to the the quality of the photo.

A very good choice for the challenge and contest. This couple spending some time alone on the dock had no idea that you captured their silhouette. Nice B+W tones.

As small as the couple appear in your frame, they draw the attention. Very well done and those reflections are mirror-like. Best of luck in the contest and the BWC, Cornelius.

That's a great scene Sir C!....nice sharp details in both the landscape and the water reflections!...

Looking at the people..it shows that they communicate with each other too!

A fine entry for either or both!..

I love a picture that tells a story ! I hope if they are contemplating marriage I hope that their journey is as peaceful as this beautiful scene.
Perfect in all repects Cornelius and another welcome addition to the BWC :)

PS Of course they could be having an argument or discussing what to have for dinner !
