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…….
Such a beautiful rugged coastline – I can imagine waves like that have the most amazing healing effect.

Catherine this took my breath away…as a child I was drawn to the ocean and played in it as a friend…it gave me life….I try to visit this friend when I can but not often enough…it is life itself and brings new life to those of us that know its love!! Thank you for bringing it back to me…

These pictures are absolutely stunning. Wow.
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.
this is beautiful. all of it.
Beautiful! I am totally in love with the ocean, and your photos are just amazing reflection of the secrets and power of it… Happy New Year!

Amnazing pictures Catherine – I love being by the sea best of all when it is rough. Best wishes for 2013.
The sea, the sea, the wonderful sea! Wonderful, pictures.
Best wishes for 2013.
beautifully, suddenly says
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!
Jennifer Richardson says
it was joy to watch the waves with you
for just awhile:)
and glad thanks for the kind words
you left on my post
over at vision and verb.
much joy to dear you,
I can stare for hours at the sea, it's so powerful, intimidating and even a bit scaring; but I love to be there especially when it's rough! Beautiful pictures!
Wish you all the best for 2013!
Amazing photos! Happy New Year!
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!
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.
Looking for Blue Sky says
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
Beautiful words and photos. Oh how I love the ocean.
Wishing you great adventures in 2013.
