Wave within rocks, Flounder Bay

Home to many small lives

At the south end of the beach I looked down to see the edge of a wave rushing between the boulders, beneath my feet.

my instant thought when i saw this was, is that a wad of fur?... I thought it was some ermine creature huddled beneath the rocks :-)

Watercats, that's a cool thought — I hadn't seen that. Glad you like it :^)

There's something wonderful happening here. The light isn't quite right (for me). Back in art school, we talked about "the red spot." It's the visual cornerstone of a paining. Sometimes literally a red dot that somehow finished the piece, activated the whole thing. Brought it to life.

Know what I mean?

Michael, I think I know what you mean, and I agree. The shapes and contrasting textures appeal to me, but somehow those aren't quite enough. I hadn't heard of the "red spot", though. Thanks for the feedback :^)

Can you go back? Sunset or sunrise?

We're over there briefly (overnight) in a few days' time; if the tides are right, I might be able to find that extra something. Cheers Michael.
