Gone in a flash! -

"Twilight Tide"
digital collage by Mick Mather
I have just enough time to post this before rushing off to another meeting. All I have time to say is, if you've never had the opportunity to sit by the sea at dusk, watching the multiple colors of the day blend to a sand-colored cream mixed with dark shadow, well, road trip! It's one of those things you put on that list of things to do before you die. Must dash, chat later!

I do prefer to sit by the sea, especially when compared to rushing off to a meeting! i have had enough of them recently.
Is it one person or are there two of them on your picture? I hesitate a little about that.

I sat by the sea yesterday. Just let the mild wind touch my hair and closed my eyes. A little moment without dark shadows.

This is beautiful picture, even if there's no colors really. But I can feel the sea.

One? Or two? I hesitate about that also. I've grown accustomed to having The Sisters see what they want to see. :)

For me, this image harks back to my old work as a block-relief method printmaker. 99% of it was in black & white and I still enjoy putting up something that's a lot more graphically oriented.

Helene, quit that wine now! There's only one person.
I can slearly see:))

I love the sea, I love lakes and rivers, water in all, but not the rain so much.

Very tranquil this photo, I'd like to sit beside him, I think it would ease my mind.

Hummm...I see a beach theme here in your last two posts (both very nice btw). Are we wishful thinking or vacation planning?

I loved being at sea and I've crossed the Atlantic many times, sailed the length and breadth of the Mediterranean and never grown tired of staring across the seemingly endless waters to the horizon. Oh, I actually like the rain since you mention it. My mum let me play in the rain when I was a little boy - doing what you might ask? Sailing leaf boats across the miniature seas that puddled in the streets. :)

Wishful thinking for the most part. I used to live in Jacksonville Beach, Florida and remember days that looked just like this. :)

I had a lot of fun working on this one. Setting the final mood was a challenge but I'm more than satisfied with it. :)
