Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
Thank you so much, Lois. It’s an incredibly beautiful place…
visual soul food 😉 … love the first one! and miss walking (there) barefoot…
Have you been there? It is a perfect place for long barefoot walks.
Hi Karen, no I havn’t been there, but I love the North Sea (too) 😉
August is nearly over. The second one is like summer leaving. Today there was a distinct September chill in the air 😦
The seasons fly by so quickly, don’t they? Well, except winter which seems like it will never end at times!
yes and this one went by FAR too quickly, well maybe it’ll be an Indian summer. fingers crossed
Yes, I think you deserve it out your way! Here’s hoping.
Calming, interesting, even nourishing.
Thanks, Elena. I think a beach can be rather nourishing anytime!
I feel 4th one, I’m standing on the edge of eternity or infinity.
—— time passing for ever ? —– or time has stopped ?
I love that you have this kind of reaction, Yoshizen. Perfect.
Such splendid, warm light. Really lovely. Wonderful compositions.
Thank you, Lemony. I love how it turned the sand to gold, just for a few moments…
Just so you know, when I have liked your posts in the reader feed, it looks like it has not been showing on the blog!!!
Thanks for letting me know, Lilly.
Lovely subtle colours, Karen. Very calming.
Wonderful compositions, Karen. And I like the way you’ve caught the softness of the light – they’re so expressive of a time of day.
Richard, that last bit of light at the end of the day is pretty magical. Thank you.
la terre a une bien douce peau
Merci, un moment de lumière dorée…
Subtly moving away for autumn to come… Incredibly beautiful, Karen.
Yes, a last fling with summer. Hopefully it will play out a little longer. Thanks, Marina.
The light, the space, the freedom. All together in one place. Lovely 🙂
Thank you, Alessandro. A beach brings all these things together perfectly. 🙂
Light and shade make lovely pictures. Beautiful.
Thank you very much!
Nicely done. The fleeting light was perfect and obviously, you did not have much time to shoot.
Thank you. Yes, just a few moments of such light.
Absolutely gorgeous – it’s very odd, as I was out last night by the river taking long exposures, then I came home and had your email – strange thought connections?! 🙂
Thank you, Cath. I like the idea of being somewhat connected by thought 🙂
OOOOOOOOO i just want to stamp across there loudly and in another section gently to see what it looks like after i’ve gone!
Ha! Leave your mark if only for a little while…
Lovely, Karen! K
Thank you, Kathleen.
Thanks very much, Hitesh.
So lovely Karen. Beautiful photography.
Hi Jack, thank you!
Marija, thanks. I love those golden moments.
More glorious pictures, No 3, golden sands and streaming shadows.
Great description, Jim. Thank you.
Great pictures! I love the third one most!
Thank you, Ullli.

A last bit of summer camping. 🙂
Thank you, Sophie!
Yes, I was glad to be there, Emily!
Thank you, Isabella.
Hey, did you make it to Cape Breton this summer?
Gorgeous colors and textures. Just brilliant. I really like your view of the world.
Thanks so much for your lovely comment!
These are lovely. You have such a sense of contours & color & subject matter. Thank you.
Thank you, Elizabeth. I was just in the right place at a perfect time…
Beautiful photos, Karen. My favorites are the second and the third. They make me go poetic.. Lovely compositions. Light is just too perfect! 🙂
The light was lovely, Nandini. I think all the tiny bits of broken shells really brought out a bit of a sparkle. Thank you.
And what a light that was! You made excellent use of it.
Thank you, Sorin. I love that kind of light.
Simple, gentle, beautiful…a place to be whole.
Yes, it is a place to be whole – I like that!
Beautiful Karen! 🙂
Thanks so much, Gigi!
You have beautifully captured the way nature makes abstract paintings with light……. bravo!
Thanks, Helen. I was happy to be there at the right time, in the golden light.
sweet and beautiful 🙂
