wave action

We’ve had overcast skies with rain most of the day. I suspect these waves were probably signs of the approaching storm. So much better than the weather channel. πŸ˜‰
There’s a gull in there again for perspective


It is wise to direct your anger towards problems — not people; to focus your energies on answers — not excuses.Β

  1. Great shot – Again. And I LOVE the quote. My eyes glaze over and I go into a different world the moment I start to hear “excuses”. Everyday I make a conscious effort to live excuse-free.


    • The gulls seem to know what they’re doing as they dive in and out of the crashing waves. I expect the wave action stirs things up for them because there seem to be more gulls when the surf gets all wild.


    • Funny how the waves seem to have taken over the blog for now. The last couple of days have been dark and stormy… as forecast by those crazy waves from a few days back.


    • I keep forgetting that you’re in Finland… not too far from where I was born. The Baltic certainly is a much more sedate inland sea. Not at all like my crazy wild Pacific (which I’ve always thought to be a misnomer.) And, yes, it most certainly is exhilarating to be out there in all that mad craziness.


  2. Beautiful contrast, the dark and light.
    I wonder at what point that swell of distant water traveling for days or months
    or years or centuries senses it is near hitting its first resistance, solid land. Ocean water is never
    fully acquiescent, but this must make some electrifying thrill inside its tentacles,
    and there it be…your wave against hard rock, all strange and new and firstly. And the
    knowing bird gone to it.
