Fire In The Sky–8.30.2017

On some nights, you just know when the light is going to make the sky a fiery orange…..

Sometimes you take a few pictures and the light shifts again, different refractions on the sky, the water, on the atoms in the air….. and you come away with a whole different look….

I have to admit. The sunsets on the coast are wicked – it has to be the whole ocean thing.

Island Reflection – 7-20-2017

Living on an island is fun when you chase the sun.  I’ve a few “off island” places I want to catch the sun doing down soon.

Beauty Everywhere…

There is beauty in everything – in every fleck of rust, in every curve of a bottle, in every color of glass, in every line of a table, in the way the light shafts of the angle of a door knob…. There is beauty everywhere….

Barred Island

I ended up with a shorter day today – so I decided to

skip the gym (you know many of my blogs start off that way!) – and hit up Barred Island – It’s a mile in and a mile out – you  MUST go during low tide and you’ll have 2hrs before and 2hrs after (the hike in is about 45 mins)

The trail is worn, the earth bare to the snarled roots of the surrounding trees.

Then as you come closer to the shore, feet and time have cut a swath of earth away and revealed the granite beneath – making for a solid walk way to the beach

hdr-IMG_7046

Then – the beach – at low tide you’ve got about 2hrs before and 2hrs after the “low point” of the tide.  You can walk over to the Island and explore it – along with the shore – it’s a great view – I’d love to hit it up at sunset – but not having to walk back thru that trail at deep dusk

It’s a real fun walk, you’ve got sand, rocky area, lovely huge granite rocks – and nothing like that great sea air.
