Meandering with camera…
A couple of random shots from previous beach walks because a trip to the Big City has me worn out…..Hazy skies, but the waves were spectacular…..
OOH MY gosh!! your pictures are scarily amazing!! 😀 i love them..
Hope they’re not too scary! 😉 So glad you enjoyed the pictures.
These are ridiculously good and I wish they were mine, again.
The restless sea has had me mesmerized of late… and thank you for your kind comments…. high praise coming from you!
Love the bottom one; dark & stormy just like me!
I can relate to that… hope the sun shines for you soonest.
Those are outstanding! Gotta love the powerful look of the ocean!
Thanks, Phil. These past two wave posts are what prompted the question posed at your site.
Oooooh, just heard a very unusual rumble of thunder out there. I love weather and wish I had a neighbor to teach me more about it.
The ocean commotion looks powerful and beautiful, Gunta!
Oh, it is, Amy, it is….. stirs my soul.
Thanks for keeping Oregon alive for me Gunta. Have a great weekend. 🙂
Looks like the sun is out. Perhaps I should have headed over to the coast from Eugene yesterday. That was the original plan, but the rain wasn’t too encouraging. Might have to settle for the same old beach…. 😉 Hope you have a wonderful weekend, too. Except (something I’ve wondered about)… do us retired peeps actually have weekends? It seems mine tend to last the whole week. 😉
Mine too 😀
You pictures are like a short meditation. Helpful every day.
Shooting them is my form of meditation. Then having such an appreciative audience encourages me to keep posting. I’m so glad you enjoy them.
🙂 We’ll get through the winter this way.
Yes, yes and yes. 😉
You got me thinking… the series of fantastically crashing waves happened on a sunny day and there were no storms for weeks. This leads me to believe that we can get the effects without the storms actually reaching us. Then again, lately our winter, with accompanying storms, has arrived and the waves have been pretty wild… during and in between. I should have headed for the coast yesterday. The sun is back out again today… with some magnificent looking clouds.
That’s one thing about the sea; every time you look at it, it’s different. I’m missing having the beach on my doorstep, but your wonderful photos sort of help. 🙂
When we first moved to Oregon, I wanted to live right on the beach, but hubby pointed out all the drawbacks…. such as far more frequent fog and much heavier winds. I’ve talked to folks who have moved a bit inland from the beach speaking of too many days without ever seeing the sun, or the corrosion of everything from being covered with a salt residue. I still dream of moving in a bit closer (I’m about 20 miles away at the moment). But I don’t think that’s likely to happen.
In Umhlanga, we’re less than 100 metres from the beach; just down the driveway in fact. The windows do get a bit misty, and we get a light film of sand on the patio, but it’s worth it. 🙂
I’m just guessing, but I suspect that your Umhlanga beach might be more like your Florida beaches. A bit more sedate (most of the time) than our tempestuous shores.
Yes, most of the time. It does have its moments though, and I wouldn’t like to be any closer than we are. 🙂
Do waves that spectacular signify a storm is coming?
I haven’t quite made the connection yet. Awhile back, when I caught those first wonderful crashing waves at Shore Acres, there were no storms. It could have just been a storm out at sea. We’ve been getting a whole lot more of these wild waves of late. I suppose they could easily have some connection to incoming storms since many of our storms seem to come from the West.
Rough seas can also be so beautiful too. Lovely pics as usual Gunta 🙂
Oh yes they can! I tend to think I prefer them that way. Thanks for the sweet and lovely comments. 🙂
Wonderful pictures Gunta. The first picture is full of drama and the second, I just love the colours. Beautiful. 🙂
Thank you Chilly….. and here I was thinking they were pretty close to monochrome 😉
It’ s beautiful and also therapeutical I believe to return to this scenery after the Big City…
‘Tis all too true. I don’t take trips to the Big City lightly. Hope your trip has been as safe and easy as mine.
The skies can certainly take the back seat in these shots – the power of those waves 😉 Hope the trip to the Big Smoke was fun.
The waves lately have been stupendous and awesome and exhilarating. As for the Big Smoke…. a few new toys and gadgets for the camera. That and Cirque seem to be the main incentives to make the trip inland. 😉
toys and gadgets for the camera are always good reasons for shopping 😉
Amazing, very well captured… 🙂
Thanks so much, Daffy!
The restless sea a rolling. Lovely photos.
Thank you Newsy…. yes, it’s certainly been restless and awesome!
