Weekly Photo Challenge – Sea

03 Sep

I love the sea in all its moods, tide in, tide out, early morning and evening. When I lived away from the sea I felt a visceral need to be at the coast and had a poster of John Masefield’s poem, ‘I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky….. ‘ on the wall in my office.

I am away from home at the moment and have only a few sea photos available to share, taken from the same spot, a daytime tide out shot and some evening at sunset, tide right in shots where the sunset appeared to be setting the sea on fire.

    This could easily be along a stretch of the Southern California coast where I once lived. I had to do a double-take. Lovely shots. Thank you.

      Thank you for your complimentary comments. We went down the Big Sur a few years ago and thought how similar the two coastlines were. πŸ™‚

    How can anyone not appreciate someone who had “I told you I was ill!” on his headstone! Beautiful pictures. I miss the ocean.

    So beautiful and stunning pictures of the sea. It is healing my pain of longing an ocean since I live so far away from the sea. Thank you so much πŸ™‚

    These are beautiful images of the sea, capturing the colours. I now live as far away from the sea as possible in the UK and I miss it so very much.

      Thank you for your appreciation. I hope the photos help a little but they may just make your longing, which I so understand, even greater…. :
      All the best to you and yours πŸ™‚

        I think whoever wrote that post must live in a very boring place or he hasn’t seen your blog or visited Alex’s site!

    Your images are fantastic, Sally. I find myself so drawn to them. Like you, I love the sea. I think I may have said this before, but I often think that my relationship to the sea has the features of Emily Bronte’s relationship to the Moors. I have withdrawal symptoms when I’m away from it too long.

    …because I’ve left my shoes and socks there and I wonder if they’re dry πŸ™‚
    A lovely set, particularly the light on the breaking waves.
