The Sound of the Sea

by Carol






Look, Stranger, on this island now
The leaping light for your delight discovers,
Stand stable here
and silent be,
That through the channels of the ear
May wander like a river
The swaying sound of the sea.

                                    W.H. Auden

These are beautiful pictures, Carol, taken no doubt at Block Island. Ahhhh, the lure of the sea ... I especially like the second photo with the reflection of the moon on the ocean. Well done, my friend.

I love anything to do with the sea and I can almost smell that salt air looking at your photos! I can imagine that trip was a feast for the eyes around every turn and that you took thousands of photos. Thanks for sharing these two!

So lovely. I enjoy going to the ocean though I seldom get the chance. I guess then it makes it even more special. That first shot is so pretty.
