The sea will have that effect........








I went down to the shore for the shortest time, the wind blew the cobwebs from my mind and I remembered my purpose. This next year 2013 will be precious the sea said to me. And somewhere in that preciousness is my purpose it seems.

The light circled on her breaking waves, although the sky was overcast and dark. The swelling surf roared and foamy breakers rushed onto the shore. My sister pointed her camera in every direction. Just seeing the sea made us both happy.

I remember every summer rushing with open arms into her embrace. That same vast ocean. Saying, I love you!! I am still here. You are too powerful to try to understand, so is everything. But I don't even care!!!

The sea will have that effect.......

  6. Your images capture the power and the majesty of the sea. Would love to experience those crashing waves as it's a much calmer ocean when it reaches our coast.

  14. The light in these photos is really beautiful. I have always found the ocean to be beautiful but also a little intimidating! (probably because I can't swim very well, so prefer to watch it from the safety of the shore ;).

    Wishing you a wonderful 2013!

  17. I want to walk down to this sea, Catherine. I would feel the same things you have expressed and shown so beautifully here. The sea calms my soul...even midst its turbulence. It reminds me that Someone is greater than I and knows who I am!

  18. I was born in a house not far from an estuary. I think my first breath must have been one of salt air. After thirty years of living inland I have moved to a house overlooking the sea. I love everything about it, the sound, the smell, the spray, the taste.

  19. I love the sea more than anything and I can almost taste it when I look at these images, I hope there will be many more in 2013. Happy New Year x
