Sandy Carlson said...

The play of light on the waves in the foreground, the deep mist, and the absence of light in the background just amaze me. I see the real world become a dream as I look through your photo. Magic. God bless.

Adrienne said...

Oh, another picture of the sea. And a lighthouse. I love lighthouses. They symbolize so much. I told my sweetheart the other day that I've decided if God should take him first I will sell everything except a few choice treasures and move to the coast. He asked why I would wait to go alone! Because I didn't think he would ever want to do that.

A bit more information on the bookstore. My mind went blank when I sent you information about the location. It's in Grand Ronde but you probably figured that out. They have thousands of books. Not all old. Lots of paperbacks and new things but definitely a fun place to go. We didn't have a lot of time there. Next time I can I want to spend a bit more time there and snoop around to see what I find. I'll be back to visit again soon. ~Adrienne~

Suzi-k said...

wow I am CRAAAAAAAZY about this photo! The contrast between the dramatic sea and the incredibly subtle sky colours is great, but throw in a lighthouse and you have a sure winner!
