Calm Before the Storm

I don’t often take the time to photograph the landscape as I walk the tide line looking for still life, and I rarely post any. Yesterday’s dawn was an exception – spectacular! Given that we are now under a blizzard warning, it seems that the beauty was a prescient prelude to what could be a very grey (and potentially perilous) several days at the Jersey shore.
Oh, and water temperature was 34F … Yes, there were surfers in the water.




It is Thanksgiving. I am sitting here, coffee in hand, so very thankful that I have the privilege of walking the tide line so frequently. Ever since I was a little girl, the beach has been a place of peace and reflection for me, and now it is a source of imagination and creativity.
I wish you all, whether you are celebrating Thanksgiving or not, a day filled with thankfulness and joy.
