Sun Dance


This morning we went to the beach before breakfast......
a sure sign that spring is not too far behind.


The sun was 'playing' on the water, jumping all over the place.


Then, as I was standing there taking these pictures 
I began to see a pattern of sorts emerging,


 resembling a choreographed dance piece.


It was quite magical, the sun's rays dancing
and bouncing on the water's surface.


And then catching a wave and riding it into shore.


It was a continuous chorus line starting way out on the horizon


and moving towards  shore in rhythm with the current.


I was transfixed as I  watched this through my camera's lens.


And, if it had been summer I would have joined in!


But remembering it was February here along the North Atlantic coast,


I restrained myself and stayed put.


I will have to wait for a few months 
before I act on that urge to join in this dance.

  3. To paraphrase than old Van Morrison song -- "It's a marvelous day for a sun dance!" Of course, he wasn't REALLY talking about dancing, eh.

  5. Jim, these photos were spectacular! I think these are among my most favorite of yours ~ that beautiful pool of sunlit water on the horizon and glitter rolling in on the waves! Still, I think my favorite was the one you used as a header: bruised sky, grass, and cobbles. You are such a wonderful photographer! May your day be filled with lovely images!

    1. Thanks Louise! Our days can all be filled with lovely images....we just have to pause and take a look around....like you have been doing!
      I know the one you mean Louise.....now THAT was a magical evening down at the beach....a very dark angry sky in back of golden sea grass with the sun pouring onto the stones and grass.

    We are (can you believe this?) expecting the "S" word off/on next three(3) days!
    Watching sunlight dance on the water is always entrancing - moonlight too. Good shots!
