The ebbing tide

 

Listen! you hear the grating roar
Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling,
At their return, up the high strand,
Begin, and cease, and then again begin,’         Matthew Arnold

A quiet moment

I savour being ‘far from the madding crowd’, and I enjoy beauty in all its forms but especially, perhaps, natural beauty.  It is not surprising, therefore, that I find something idyllic about the seashore on a still day.

Done Fishing

This photo was taken in the same location as the Man on a Bike posted on 5 March.  Again the point of interest is a solitary figure in a vast open space.  In this case the man is an angler who seems to have finished for the day.  Whether or not he has caught any fish probably matters very little.  No doubt he feels refreshed by the smell of sea air, the soothing rhythm of the waves, and the temporary escape from the presence of others and the demands of everyday life.

Seashells

The first two photos are of the same shell, or, rather, of several shells welded together by time  –  almost fossilised.  I have shown the inside and outside to give some indication of the layers of shell.  At the same time the pictures create interesting natural abstract patterns.
