Sea Spray

Tides are high here in Co. Waterford these times. I could spend hours just watching the waves.

I took this photograph over the harbour wall out at Boat Strand yesterday morning. I must admit to feeling a little seasick as I look at it now even though I felt absolutely wonderful when I was actually there to witness the sea in all her glory.

The Moving Sea

How does it grab you?

  1. WoooHooo! Love it! I was born and raised in Halifax, which is a sheltered harbor. just west of Halifax is Peggy’s Cove which is a fully exposed tourist area with a light house.They close the road during storms because the waves are so high. The picture below was a storm in 2007.That wave is about 40 feet over the rocks and it is about 40 feet from the rocks to the sea – so you are looking at the top 40 feet of an 80 foot wave coming into the parking lot.

  2. Pauls’ picture is awesome but scary. The ocean has many moods. Your picture reminds me of how our emotions run some remaining within while others disperse themselves into the air..Both are beautiful in their own right..

    1. Joni, that’s a fascinating thought about emotions.
      Yes, Paul’s photo is ‘awesome.’ Didn’t think I’d ever use that word but it seems perfect in this context.

  3. Your photo of the crashing waves grabs me in the gut, in a visceral exciting spiritual sense. I get motion sick just standing on a dock, but how I love looking at the ocean. As you can tell from he top border of my blog, I equate life with the ocean, and the tides and the waves crashing and then lessening, until the next big crash. 🙂

  4. What a beautiful photo to open the week! Can’t wait to see your beautiful beach and county one day. You are a one-woman tourist bureau for county Waterford. I love the photos and reading your daily blog. You show all of us the beauty and inspiration that can be found in our own backyard.
