Sea of Solitude




















Sea of Solitude

Hi Everyone.. Thanks for popping in.. I only have time for a quick post today so thought I'd show you a few more shots from last week's full moon and a day shot of one of the many piers dotting the bay near my home.. 

As much as I love  a rough and tumble sea.. I also enjoy it's quieter moments..  still and glassy waters.. the rhythmic lapping at the shoreline... slow and repetitive it quietens the mind and restores the spirit.. when things get a bit hectic for me.. this is where you will find me...

Beautiful by day.. and majestic by the light of a full moon  




[Texture Tuesday]
This week's Texture Tuesday Challenge is to use Kim Klassen's latest texture 'Yesteryear'. Which is just what I have done in each of these shots ..  I'm thinking these barnacles are feeling right at home with it..   If you would like to see more Texture Tuesday's Entries, pop over to Kim's blog ...   [Kim Klassen Cafe]




Have A Lovely Week Everyone

LOVE LOVE LOVE that first image...so cool. Curious how you achieved that light...was it just contrast play or did you alter the threshold? Nicely done!

SO beautiful Julie! I love the sea anyway she is but you are so right, there is something so calm about the clear smooth water that puts my soul at ease. I love the shot of the pier, it reminds me of a favorite place of mine. :)
Have a great week my friend.
Hugs!

As I was looking at your photos this morning, I felt like I was looking through the archives on the Library of Congress site or through the state digital archives and you know how many hours I spend there.

So, when I read that this weeks texture is "yesteryear" I was not surprised in the least. Honey, you nailed it! Each of these have that feeling of nostalgia I get every time I come across a vintage treasure. Very nice, my dear, very nice!!!

Hugs
