One big wave…always on the move


Cheri Lucas Rowlands posted a great theme this week on the Daily Post.  I have decided to interpret it with my favorite moving object.. no not myself…..

“Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it’s sent away.”

― Sarah Kay

While in Vietnam I decided to take a rest stop and catch my breath in Danang. I was super exhausted from the hiking, biking and canoeing marathon and just wanted to take a couple of days and rest at the ocean.  I woke up one morning and decided to take some photos of the sun coming up..and later the sun going down. I stood in one place and just kept on shooting photos of the always moving waves.  From the same exact spot every single picture was so different and so beautiful.  I hope you enjoy.

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.

“The sea is emotion incarnate. It loves, hates, and weeps. It defies all attempts to capture it with words and rejects all shackles. No matter what you say about it, there is always that which you can’t.” 
― Christopher PaoliniEragon

How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.

Here are some other photos of my beach time.

I pray to be like the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistency rather than the highs and the lows.

  1. I really like your interpretation of the challenge where you stand still and the ocean moves. The pictures capture the sense of movement beautifully.
