My Photography and Travel Blog

Fine Art Collection

Some of my favorite subjects are the weathered remnants of this pier. For years these great timbers have greeted and parted the incoming and outgoing tides. The sea’s salty caress has eroded and chipped away at these once sturdy wooden goliaths. Yet still they remain through wind, rain, storms, low, and high tides. Maybe I spend too much time observing and thinking of how these old weary wooden stakes remind me of life….or maybe I should spend more time here just enjoying the lady of the sea as she constantly caresses and quietly takes from everything she touches. When she is peaceful, she conveys such a wonderful sense of calm and harmony. And when she is furious, she brings such a sense of perspective at just how small we really are in the grand scheme of life and nature. Still, I find it most theraputic to watch aas she slowly erases the lines in the sand, cleans and heals the scars on her shores. And, brings a fresh start to everything she touches.
Maybe, I should not sip as much wine while I am photographing seascapes…lolol !!
Have a safe (and peaceful) Easter Weekend everyone.

  1. She is quite the “enchantress” ~ I agree. The great timbers are fortunate to know her fury – and her soothing love…. This is stunning dear friend. I am like you – I look into nature and see so much of the human condition reflected. Life is ever-changing and dynamic – and there is so much passion to embrace everywhere. Both your photo and words have stirred me today – in a good way ~ Blessings and Love this weekend~RL

      • Robyn! Doing okay now…(sly grin), I just been quite puzzled and perplexed by my instructor, my craft, and my assignments. I will be posting later tonight about it for everyone to review (I do hope you will chime in!!) Warmest wishes and highest hopes for you dear one!

  2. I never would have guessed remnants of an old pier. Atlantis rising, sure, but not a rotted per. Wonderful shot Stan. It has my imagination going! Happy Easter to you, too, Dear Stan.

      • wrote “Still learning the wonderful art of photography..” I’ll say to that: aren’t we all. And: I think from the images you are showing us that you are at the top edge of that learning curve.
