I quite often take these shots under the pier on cloudy mornings because I know the reflection will be better. I usually don’t share them because this particular pier is a bit crooked and I never like the way the lines line up. This is the first one I’ve deemed share-worthy. Hope you like it!
The heart can think of no devotion
Greater than being shore to ocean –
Holding the curve of one position,
Counting an endless repetition.
Behold the Sea,
The opaline, the plentiful and strong,
Yet beautiful as is the rose in June,
Fresh as the trickling rainbow of July;
Sea full of food, the nourisher of kinds,
Purger of earth, and medicine of men;
Creating a sweet climate by my breath…
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Excerpt from the poem Seashore
A curious Cloud surprised the Sky,
’Twas like a sheet with Horns;
The sheet was Blue—
The Antlers Gray—
It almost touched the lawns.
So low it leaned—then statelier drew—
And trailed like robes away,
A Queen adown a satin aisle
Had not the majesty.
~ Emily Dickinson
I hope your Sunday was as bright and beautiful as mine. I’ll be up bright and early hoping to see something spectacular to share tomorrow! Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead! Sweet Dreams : )
As the sun ascended into the heavy, low-lying clouds the reflection flashed on the sand like a thunderbolt. Some might say it was almost electrifying. ; )
Oh, Beach! How I’ve missed you all week! So happy to see that we are expecting mostly sunny skies for the week ahead. Toes in the sand and lens on the horizon, it’s a great way to start a Sunday! Hope all of you are having a wonderful start to your Sunday morning as well!
