Silhouette on Long Sands Beach by 


The day before Christmas, the energy on the beach was fitting a grand squall.. but the skies cooperated for the moment. Cold, breezy and with the very darkest of skies found a lone person briskly walking the waters edge. There were three surfers in the water at this same time… brave souls!!!
Long Sands is one of the most popular beaches in the York, Maine area and one that I visit many many times a year.

Silhouette on the Beach
Where am I going on this bright cold day
I’ll never tell, no I won’t say.
It may be from here to there or
somewhere about this place.
It may be to heaven that someday I’ll grace.
Oh where are you going
this you ask of me.
I’m going to venture out to the sea.
I have a song to write
a painting as well
a photo to capture
before the winds push pell- mell.
How long am I staying
you ask the silhouette on the beach.
I’ll answer this one
for it’s just out of reach
for me to call
for me to send
for me to claim a source
I’m off to the sea to dance
and you respond, “Of course!”

The art of collecting the interesting and intriguing things of this world and bringing excitement of the possibility of “freezing” that moment in time are the reasons that my eyes have broadened to look under and over and in between the winds of the nights and the lights of the days…… Come walk beside me and we can be the “sunshine” for this season in time……….. just walk beside me…………..

    Hi Brenda – nice capture on the beach. I almost always prefer color…..
    In this particular instance, I feel that some of the detail is lost in the b+w – especially the clouds. It is still a nice mood shot….

  • Thank you Mary…. I feel the same way…. I like crispness!!!
    Thanks for taking the time to comment!!!
