Was this is Toronto? It’s wonderful !
Thank you, and it’s in Scotland in East Lothian about 10 miles from my home. It looks out across the estuary of the Firth of Forth , and one of those Islands you see in the distance is the Bass Rock.
AWESOME!!!! Hmmmmm. was the Firth of Forth a Genesis song or was it the Forth of Fifth…….Loved it !~
Beautiful composition 🙂
Thank you so much…..it did result in rather sandy wet knees!
Have a wonderful 2014, Seonaid — I so enjoy this recurring opportunity to see with your eye and your spirit…
Penny I always love to hear from you…..and your eye through your lens always brings such marvellous sights!
I’m looking forward to another year of Toronto shots 🙂
Beautifully captured in words and picture. I like the possibilty of seeing different things in the sand and water…Happy New Year!
I love that too…….and had never seen the fish, or anything else for that matter…..
I love the idea that creatures might be lurking just beneath the sand!
Isn’t Mother Nature amazing? and you’ve captured her work beautifully!
What beautiful words and a lovely photo to go along with it.
Thank you, the words as always flowed out of the photo 🙂
Very nice. I grew up by the ocean (Boston) and jobs have landlocked me for more than 30 years. I miss the smell of salt in the air and the taste of salt water and have always envied yours. It looks as though you have a tremendous tidal range there … impressive. My nose twitches at the beautiful smells … just out of my reach! How frustrating! D
I’m so sorry to provoke frustration David 🙂
I can totally understand, as I miss the ocean if I don’t visit frequently. I just can’t imagine being landlocked and away from her salty waves. I don’t think anywhere in Scotland is very far from the sea, as we have such a crinkly coast!
This shot was taken on Yellowcraigs beach, and the sand is on a very gentle gradient down into the wide tidal estuary of the Firth of Forth. I’ve had a few comment on the blog about the tidal range so I did a bit of research and it seems that the further you are away from the equator the greater the tidal range! The things I’ve learnt from blogging!
Thank you 🙂
A beautifully cyclical haiku and a great image ★
Oh Gilly you’re always so kind….glad you enjoyed it…I got my knees wet, cold and sandy to take this shot!
Oh .. yes …. a perfect haiku inspired by seeing… really seeing … Beautiful imagery .
Poppy you write such lovely comments…thank you…from one seer to another 🙂
I like the perspective 🙂
Thanks Lisa, as usual I was on my knees and ended up wet cold and sandy! But I think the shot was worth it 🙂
What a beautiful picture! Those ripples on the sand could almost be like fish!
I love that you saw fish in the shapes….now that you say that I can see them too 🙂
I’m sure there’s another haiku in that!
It really does look like the earth is “bleeding,” not in an alarming way, though. I love the comparison of water to Earth blood. I have at times described the color of Earth blood as green. But this is perfect for the picture.
It was the pink light, and the vein like shapes which got me thinking along these lines. I nearly called the post Earth Blood, but in fact felt there was a lot more to write and reflect about….so that will be another post…another time 🙂
I love your idea of earth blood as green….for me it’s always the water flowing out across the earths skin…..but both are lovely thoughts.
What a wonderful compliment, thank you 🙂
