WALKING BY THE SEA

WATCHING THE SUN RISE

Walking to the beach 2 miles from my home is worth every step whatever the weather, standing to watch the sun rise is such a precious and peaceful time. Combing the shore, what will I find; a stone with a hole right through, what made the hole? An empty shell, a piece of driftwood, one day part of a shirt. Was it taken off a boat by a gust or wind or simply left behind on the shore one sunny day?

JUST STANDING ON THE SHORE GAZING!

Gazing at the sea is never dull, it changes constantly, one moment the horizon is a dark line and the next, clouds have blown in and the sea and clouds are the same colour obliterating the horizon for a while.

Walking along the beach is fascinating and feeds my creative life. There are shapes and pattern everywhere. Will I use all the photos I take? Probably not! I keep them as an aide memoir because there may be a shape I can use in my work or a colour that would enhance a piece of cloth with paint, dye or thread. The lesson for today is always have a camera to record that precious view.
