sea spray

wave-3680Think cooling thoughts…

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
― John Masefield, Sea Fever: Selected Poems

    • I think this shot was from last winter’s archives. A time when offshore storms can produce the perfect weather. Pleasant (at least for my love of cooler temps) on the beach, but the far away storms kicking up some incredible surf.
      I note a bit of German creeping in from your most recent adventures?

  1. I see the obvious restless water spirit but hope I’m not alone in also seeing the calm placid undercurrent struggling to maintain control. (Yin & Yang?) If so, that’s a testament to your composition!

    • Thanks. I love the interpretation, but it certainly wasn’t a conscious choice per se. I have to admit to marveling at many of the happy ‘accidents’ that occur.

    • I love the sea and always will be drawn to its drama and moods.
      Challenges….. So many challenges, so little time. If I only had all the time in the world to do it all.

  2. You caught that lovely symetry, the boulder, the wave a match in size and shape, and that great plume in the middle. Wonderfully robust, all of it. Including Masefield’s beautiful poem.
