Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

I’ve never lived more than a few hours away from the beach at any point in my life. I could easily live on the beach, if only the planets would align. I love going to the ocean, watching the waves and wildlife, listening to the rhythm of the waves… 

South Beach, FL

To my unending regret, I’m not really made for the beach. I have fair skin and the only “tan” I can ever hope to achieve is a serious increase in freckles (sigh), but I’ve always felt the sunscreen was a worthwhile trade off.

Some of my favorite photographs are of the sunrises and sunsets over the ocean. I feel like it’s the perfect backdrop to practice new skills with a camera while finding a little peace for the soul.

My favorite part of the sea is that it fits all moods – happy, sad, angry – there’s a beach for that. It’s a great place for self reflection or fun with friends. No matter where I go, I always seem to end up near the water, and I’m never disappointed (smile).

Ko Phi Phi, Thailand

Beyond the east the sunrise; Beyond the west the sea
And East and West the Wander-Thirst that will not let me be;
It works in me like madness to bid me say goodbye,
For the seas call, and the stars call, and oh! The call of the sky!
