Not the beach...

Wish I was near the ocean - love the water - love the sound, the view, the immensity... but not ocean near my home. Only a big lake - but it still gives me the sense of peace that water brings.

real lighthouse...
fake lighthouse...

I love the ocean too! It is just SO peaceful. These shots are just awesome, they have such a calm feeling about them and I love the people on the benches, it gives them a real sense of place. The color in the fake lighthouse is STUNNING- that red against the blue sky is just AWESOME!

Oh how I love the ocean as well! It is my dream to have an ocean front house. Great color in the last shot!

Amy said...

That first one is great. The b&w and the solitary person really give it some moodiness.

Jason said...

Soooo cool, great colors on those shots. TFS

That lake does look so calming here, I love the b/w :)

I love the starkness of the first shot, and I'd never know that was a fake lighthouse in the last one--great color there.

Amy said...

These shots are great. I like the one of the couple on the bench.

Mmmm...looks so peaceful! I like your lighthouses. I honestly don't think I've ever seen one up close!

I love water too - there is something centering about water. I love your lighthouse shot - it is so good. The colours are gret.

Amy said...

These are all awesome, but my favorite is the second one with the pretty blue of the lake! I'm also a huge fan of the ocean!

So beautiful. I love the ocean so much. I can't even imagine living anywhere I can't see one! I grew up on the ocean...it was right outside my house! Haha...and the smell is so beautiful. Even the clam flats! Hehe.

Great shots. I love the perspective and how you caught the light hitting the water.

That first one is really neat!! Great job! I am fortunate to live close to the ocean... and we try to go often!

Love the shot of the lighthouse in the distance - so peaceful! I love the ocean, too, but live WAY to far away from it! :)
