I caught this late afternoon peaceful scene one cold day in December.
Even the seagulls seemed to stand still.

I used the image to highlight one of my favorite quotes…

Another day – at the same beach, looking behind me…
This time sunny and windy.
The blue sky a potential background for a word or two or three…
Any suggestions?

I welcome your ideas for text for this possible meme-worthy photo…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Layer

This post inspired by Frank at Dutch goes the Photo

The prompt: Layer

One very windy November afternoon in 2016…

Layer upon layer of loud angry waves crashed toward shore
Lining up one right after the other…
Relentless.

Matching rhythm with my steps
As I paced up and down the beach
That day.

Head down bracing for the gusts
As I pounded through the sand
Relentless.

Trying to make sense
Of the path ahead.

Photo a Week – On the Horizon

Nancy Merrill is hosting a photo challenge. The theme this week: A Photo a Week Challenge – On the Horizon

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF HORIZONS (PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, OR OTHERWISE).

Walking along the boardwalk one day in late October.
Late morning. Sun is shining. The beach is deserted.
Found a seat on an empty bench.

What a sight.
Banks of fluffy white clouds cushioning the horizon…
…where ocean meets the sky.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Reflection

Nancy Merrill Photography is hosting a photo challenge:

The theme this week is: Reflection.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF REFLECTIONS.

Two years ago my husband and I rented a small condo across the street from a short stretch of the Atlantic Ocean. It was only for 3 months while waiting. Waiting to sell our house. Waiting for our new condo to be finished. So we could move on to the next phase of our lives.

My favorite part of that hectic time was walking up and down the beach in the late afternoon. Especially at low tide. It was off season (October through December) and I often had that stretch of beach to myself. It was glorious.

Peaceful alone time.

At 3:58 pm – on December 1st – I caught these moments.
The setting sun reflecting off sand…sky…clouds and surf.

Here are three photos in sequence – taken within 2 minutes…
