I can’t remember a time when I didn’t love going to the beach. Being near the ocean always has a calming effect for me.
This image is one I took a while back on a particularly beautiful day in Lincoln City, Oregon. I decided to give it a moody look using the Prisma app (my favorite one … this week). Ha!
The light coming through the pier seems to say, “explore … come closer.” So I did. I walked the beach and soothed my soul.
Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’
This weeks photo challenge is the Sea. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like the sea. Some of my best days and nights have been at the beaches of northern California.
I remember one time when I had to go to Bodega Bay to make sales calls. It happened to be one of those grey, overcast days and I didn’t really feel like driving out there but I had to get the calls out of the way. On the way back to my office, I pulled over at one of the beaches near Bodega and simply sat and watched the sea. It was spectacular to watch the power of the mighty surf as she rolled in, wave after wave.
Because of the weather, there was no one else there but me and God. Magical time; just magical.
This image is the beach in Marina Del Rey (southern CA). The sun had already set, so all I could get was the last vestiges of light on the waves, while watching this man and his child. I added a nostalgic effect because that’s how it felt to me. Namaste’
