after raging storm..

life returning to normal

new sand from ocean

now calmly hugging the shore

hosting footprints – till next time

Morning Haze

through the morning haze
comes the rhythm of the waves –
gulls prance on smooth sand

Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge


On one of the last summer days at the beach. A day when going into the water was prohibited because the waves had a hurricane at its back. There it was, a squirting fountain that came up out of the sand each time the tide claimed its place on shore.  It lasted a while. I had not seen that before. It was facinating: )

riding edge of waves
young fairies trapped in bubbles
freed on sandy shore

“There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore,
there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.”

Quote by: Lord Byron

all senses open
a forest walk

© Chèvrefeuille

there’s solace
in toes in the sand,
nature’s own
