The Line Is Drawn


When the ocean is relatively calm and the sun is brightly shining,


I am in awe of the enormity of the Atlantic Ocean sitting right in front of me.


The perfectly straight line of the horizon accentuates and defines 
two of the earth's most majestic frontiers.


Standing here at the water's edge can be a humbling, 
while at the same time, an exhilarating experience.


I have seen this 'view' for most of my life,
and each time remain transfixed.


And I bet you thought from the title this was going to be a 'political' post......me, political?!

  1. Morning Jim,
    Stunning, really stunning. Captured perfectly also. If I lived with that view, I would not get anything done, mesmerizing...
    We have snow falling here, yes, a first. I am in shock!

    1. Well Ivan you have beat us to it this year! Enjoy it as best you can.....get the camera outside and see what you can find.
      I am glad this view isn't outside our windows because as you said I would get nothing done as well!!

  5. That enormous flat horizon line is what we see on the prairies too -- except ours is land and yours is water!

    1. Debra, that is so true! I remember the first time we drove across Canada and we both couldn't believe the flatness!!!! Yes, just like these photos! It took for ever to get to Winnipeg and yet we could see it on the horizon. Very perceptive of you.

  8. It is beautiful and I can't imagine waking up each day and seeing the splendor and wonder but honestly, I need therapy for I find it so frightening to watch the waves and clouds hunker down.

    1. Well, in order to see it Joanne I have to drive down the road for a few minutes and there it would be! You would be surprised how many people have a fear of the ocean....Ron's sister-in-law is petrified of it. She was brought up on the prairies and needs the land all around her I guess. I think you would adapt after a while.

  9. That view! Lucky you. David and I were saying just this morning how much we enjoy seeing the horizon all around us. Like Debra said, ours is land and yours is water, but it has it's own beauty.

    1. Just saw the latest report that shows that the south tip of Nova Scotia will be affected. We live up from there on the northeast side. We will get rains and wind and will take the necessary precautions....it just so happens that the tides will be higher and the moon is full!! At we live at sea level. We shall see.
