Beaches and Shores

It is a little known fact that I must have a lake, an ocean, a seashore, a riverbed, or if all else fails, just a pond nearby to make all things right in my world. Water is one of the many driving forces that nurtures my world. Add to that a forest or a woods or a grassy plain, or even a mountaintop overlook, and my world is so much more. The many elements that make up our world also enrich our lives in ways we never imagined.

Oftentimes, I view photographs such as those like Jean's from the quaint island of New Zealand, or Barb from the snow covered Rockies in Colorado, or Frank from 'across the pond' in England, or Steve from the windswept coasts in New England, and I wonder just what it would be like to live in one of those beautiful places.

Then I remember a thought shared years ago, that I am sharing my world and its many experiences, through the images I capture. And that makes 'your' world so much more. I gathered a few of my favorite images I have captured over the years to share with you today. Images such as these from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, the shores and the bays of Lake Michigan, and Nantucket Island off Cape Cod, to share with you today. ENJOY!

  1. All so very true, and as landscapes and scenes from our own countries are shared, so is our friendship. I look at yours, at Barb's at KB's, Jennifer's, and so many others, and wonder what it would be like to actually live there? Then I realise others do the same when they see some of NZ. Your collection today is beautiful, each photo and arrangement .Hope all is well with you up North. The flood waters have receded, bare banks now vertical, instead of sloping and covered with vegetation, rubbish hanging off branches, but so many properties have silt and mud accumulated, either on streets, inside business shops, or in their homes, Some have lost everything.I am so thankful we are safe.

  2. These are beautiful images. I also appreciate the many bloggers who share our beautiful world with their photos. Thank You for sharing yours Carol. Have a beautiful weekend.

  3. That's what I love about blogging, Carol. We get to enjoy other landscapes, even traveling with our Blog Friends without leaving our own homes. When you moved, I wondered how you'd like your new locale, and now I see you're finding places there that interest you and your camera. Your mosaic makes me look carefully - each and every photo has its charms.

  4. Wonderful photos! Makes me quite envious - such superb photo opportunities - thoroughly enjoyed your series.
