Wow I was just there last week, it sure was icy then. Love your photos. B

Kate said...

Looks like a great place to collect rocks, which I love to do. The waves indicate that it was a pretty windy day when you shot this one.

That's a lovely composition.

The erosion must be tremendous to expose so many stones like that.

Giga said...

Fale jak na morzu i tyle kamyków do zbierania. Bardzo ładnie tam jest. Pozdrawiam. *** Waves as the sea and to collect as many pebbles. Very nice there. Yours.

see you there! said...

The colors in the first photo are wonderful. I keep spotting that pale color combo in various places. Maybe I need to go do some spring shopping :-)

An interesting plateau and active surf. Bringing all the elements except fire together. I'll have to check out Watery Wednesday. Thanks.

Sandra said...

I love rocks and I love sticks and driftwood so that means I love that first photo.

Judy said...

That last shot reminds me of Lake Michigan.

I would love to take a stroll on that beach with my camera of course.

RuneE said...

A beach like this makes me long for summer. I'll overlook the snow :-)

Lowell said...

Do you ever find those beautiful sandblasted pieces of glass along the shore? I'd find a lot of that when I was a kid in Duluth, Minnesota...but never anywhere else since. Wish I had all that now!

It looks cold and gloomy up in them thar parts!

RedPat said...

Love that beach shot EG!

Stephanie said...

The first shot is my favorite kind of photo. We often over look what is on the ground while walking along. The second one is lovely but looks brrr cold.

Jim said...

Great shots.

Hope you had your woolies on!

Judy said...

Looks like most of the snow and ice are gone, there...
I still wish I was on that beach, well, any beach...

Michelle said...

Great coloring on the group of pebbles.

Jenny Woolf said...

Looks to me as if some of those pebbles might be very interesting, different colours and types of stone. Am I right?

Jack said...

A beautiful place to take a walk. It reminds me of a northern version of Sanibel, an island off Southwest Florida, with miles of shells on the beach.

I could hear the sound of the waves lapping!

Beautiful. I love the soft colours.

I love the soft pastel colors in the second shot. Looks like a watercolour painting.

I love that first picture. Not sure what it is about rocks that fascinates me but i love them.

Your second photo is a great composition and colors are a perfect complement to each other. Well done!

Wonderful photos! I love the first one:)

Genie said...

What a wonderful duo of pictures. The first one is wonderful with its mix of wood and pebbles. Bet that would hurt the bare feet. The second one is most impressive. It give the viewer a totally new look at the space. Nice post. genie
