Here are some of the sights that have given me peace in the past few weeks. I hope they do the same for you.

The photo "Stranded," which I know I've posted before, was taken at a very picturesque and interesting spot on the beach, where the remnants of a rotting wharf of years past, has taken on a life of its own. My husband thinks huge boats must have pulled in to the Long Island shore here, to haul out sand from local sand mines. I'll have to research that and let you know. At any rate, the "ruins" of all these wood pilings offer many interesting views and create a Stonehenge type environment. I'll be working up my other shots to show you soon.

On another note, please bear with me while I re-design my page! I hope you get out into the sparkling sunshine today. I had intended to do just that, but at this rate, fiddling with my template and settings, I'm not likely to make it past my desk!

  2. I like the gulls and stones. These pictures are well taken. Nice bright cheery scenery, I always like pics taken in the day.

  3. Lynda, such great shots!!! Indeed very peaceful, thanks for sharing! And good luck restyling your blog (I don't even dare to begin ... find it too complicated and time consuming ... :-))

  4. Lynda:

    Wow, the new format looks fabulous. It fills my whole screen, and I have panavision!

    Love the pictures too.

    Happy trails.

  5. DUTA - Thanks for your visit. I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. You have some beautiful beaches in Israel, I've heard.

  6. ANNE - It was time consuming, but I wanted a less crowded look. Now I've got that, I think, along with an over-sized header!

    Hope all is well with you! We haven't been in touch in awhile.... I guess it's a good thing, that we are both so busy doing something that gives us joy.

  7. Swubird - Please tell me if you think my header is too overwhelming. It took me forever to make it big enough to stretch across, but I don't want it to be so big as to be off-putting. What do you think? Should I make it more subtle?

    Yea, yea, I know I'm not subtle....

  8. All your photos are wonderful...but anything with water always draws me in! I know you posted stranded before but it is a favorite of mine!

    Great wide format...I like the look!
    Cheers

  9. I hope you didn't sit at the computer ALL day, at least! The photo of the seaweed reminds me of my bro & I as kids, throwing blobs of seaweed at each other. At first it's kind of gross, but after a while, you realize it's really not as bad as it seems (it helps that you can rinse off in the Atlantic, probably. *L*)

  10. I also love the sounds you hear and the smells that fill the air on the beach, the photos, brought back the memories.

    Have a great weekend.

  12. Kia ora Lynda,
    Just returned from a 20 minute walk - my longest yet. Just observed the patterns of sunshine and felt the gentle breeze blow upon me. Getting there. Hope to hear the sounds of the sea soon, and then the mountains. Kia kaha.
    Aroha,
    Robb

  13. Oh! My dear beautiful Lynda, this is SO beautiful it is exquisitely painful for me. I can't tell you how much I miss the sea. I LOVE the sun here in NM and the varied terrain of mountains and high desert, but I hunger for the sea. If I close my eyes I can see and hear it. I lived by the sea for time in Australia and used to visit on the coast of Maine every summer. And yet, I know I couldn't live there when it rained for months on end without letting up, I would hunger for NM.

    I have thought of sometime having a cottage by the sea in Maine. I could wander for hours and hours photographing sea glass and shells and birds and water ripples....ALL the things I so deeply love.

    Whenever I look at your water photos it as if I am looking through my own eyes. As I've mentioned before we see through very much the same eyes when photographing water.

    I know my life is so full right now getting my book ready, but one day I truly hope to walk and photograph with you. It is on my list of dreams. Just as I hope to one day see Robb's Ruahines. I tell myself, "All in good time".

    Your photos are beyond photography. They are beyond art. You seem to capture the living vitality of the water and land. That is truly something magical. I can't wait for you to see some of my water photos, you will see how much alike we are. Not that you don't see that now, but like I once said, yours are the only water photos that are similar to mine. I love that.

    You are often in my thoughts. I feel safe, good and REALLY me just when I think of you. I am glad we are connected. I love you for your kindness and profoundly deep wisdom and beauty.

    Much love to you, and thank you for "seeing".
    Your wild sister, Robin

  14. Hi Lynda.
    "Stranded" is a lovely shot. I'd like to wander along that beach myself. Lol, I know what you mean about not being able to tear yourself away from the computer... even on a sunny day. Been there! :-) Sure you still enjoyed yourself.

  15. Hi Lynda, you know funny you mention the Stranded. As I was admiring your photos, I actually stopped and kept looking on this one, I really like it.

    Your blog is looking great, and you know I told someone else too, it is loading much faster now too. Lol on your note about memes and awards, lol, I am with you. I came to blog to freely express myself, and next thing I have to work, lol.

    Lynda hope all is well with you. Hugs and Kisses from Matthew, okay from me too, lol.

    Anna :)

  16. It has been a great pleasure to visit your blog after a long time for my compulsions of poor connectivity, available of electricity and my writings on 15 blogs of mine. But still I love you and your work. Take care of the jewel within you.

  19. Ram Bansal - Thank you for your kind words. Somehow I missed this comment when I was responding, so I apologize for being so late with it. Hope all is well.

    You must be SOOOO busy, with 15 blogs to attend to. I can barely keep up with ONE!
