barefoot in sand

The ankle is doing well and I decided to take it for a walk on (in?) the sand. The day was drearily overcast, so I didn’t bother much with monochrome scenes. Instead I zoomed in a bit more than usual.seven_devils-4883

A bit of green, some dried out seeds and a weathered chunk of driftwood.

In case there was any doubt, this is what the day looked like at the beach.

Then there was this captivating unidentified mini-shrimp?

These rather bizarre sand formations were worthy of a shot. Wish I had had the patience to focus in better or increase the depth of field, but you’ll have to make do for now.

Eric probably did better with his shot of these sand sculptures, but I’m including this to give you a sense of scale. You may note (if you’re the least bit observant) that the orange rocks have been moved for E’s photographs.

I have no idea why I shot this except that I rather like the contrasts.

Finally, there’s these Alder trees on the way out of the parking lot. I liked this mix of tree bark and lichens for lack of anything else to shoot. It was just so good to be out on the beach and walking (very nearly) normally again!

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.
