This was inspired by the beautiful poem ‘By The Sea’ written by my wonderful friend Restlessd
You can read the poem below.

It immediately conjured up the music of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata

By The Sea

The moon reflects its luminance
As I stand above the flowing waves.
The tide moves evenly in and out
White foam crashes into the caves.

Sea oats whisper in the wind
A gull breaks the night with its cries.
I stand alone taking all this in
And a smile comes into my eyes.

Darkness, darkness all around,
The sand so cool to my feet.
The music of the ocean near,
Yet, silence set in so deep.

A motionless sky beacons to me
While streaming white stars say no.
So I will stay where I be, I’ll not disturb thee
For I really don’t want to go.

Melting clouds drift all about
Just like ghosts beyond the sky.
Now and then there comes a call
As a sea bird soars on by.

Away beyond the shoreline tide
A few lone ships fade and hide.
There they await the dawn
Knowing then their work is done.

Ebbing, peaceful rhythms ever so near;
Quiet solitude engulfs me,
I am calm and I am happy here,
Walking in the night by the sea.

Several backgrounds were blended together in Photoshop CS4, and textures added. The beautiful girl was blended over several layers, some of them being blurred to give movement to her dress. The clouds and moonbeams were painted. I was pleased with the end result, so I really hope that you will like it.

Special thanks to the artists who so generously shared their stock…
