Writing with Light

Early Morning Calm

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to live by the sea. I love watching the waves come crashing in. I love the calming sound of the ocean and I particularly love being out by the water right after sunrise. The sea is calm, there’s no one around except maybe a fisherman or two. Boats tied up by the docks are bobbing up and down. This one particular early morning in Bar Harbor fit the bill perfectly.

The only thing missing was Jessica Fletcher cycling down the street a la Murder She Wrote. Here I go dating myself again. Ah come on…didn’t you want to live in Cabot Cove?

  4. Edith, great shot of that area of Bar Harbor. Definitely a peaceful place to be early in the morning! And by the way, I remember Murder She Wrote. It wasn’t that long ago was it?

  5. Oh to live by the sea! I like the painterly feel this has, adds a little extra serenity.

    Wonderfully composed and processed Edith. I remember that show and even stayed in the B&B that served as her home in the television show.

  10. This is what coastal Maine is all about. Nicely done.

  11. That looks so good enlarged, Edith. They always used to say that the Brits liked the sea because we were an island nation. Clearly not really true if Canadians like it too! There is something special about being by the sea – time I got back to it. Great image.

  12. Uh oh. I know all about Jessica Fletcher, so I think I’ve just dated myself here! πŸ™‚ What a beautiful image, Edith, you’ve really captured all the character of the setting just perfectly here!

    Love this shot Edith! Great painterly processing! I grew up on the Great Lakes. While it’s not the sea, I sure do miss them and being near and on the water.

  14. Beautiful image, Edith. Ah yes! My wife telecommutes and Murder She Wrote is one of her favorite background noises while working at the computer. The wonders of Netflix πŸ™‚
