This coastal gorge along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia, is named after the English clipper ship Loch Ard that sank nearby in 1878. Of the 54 people aboard the clipper, only two nineteen-year-olds survived. Both of them floated in through the narrow opening in the distance.
To the right of the gorge opening and protected from the sea by its high walls, is this quiet cove with its waters lapping gently against the rock face and spilling silently onto shore.
After all the stillness and pond-floating of my two previous posts, let’s have a little excitement! In this image, Pacific Ocean waves crash forcefully over a rock shelf in La Jolla, California.
We recently visited New England for a graduation and stayed in a Tiny House on the pond pictured here. Since we were busy with graduation activities, we were only at our Tiny House during the morning and evening hours when the bugs were out in force. When shooting these photos, I had to work fast and run for cover! Also, I am sorry to say the bugs kept us from floating romantically in either of the little boats available on the pond.
Nevertheless, this tranquil spot in woods of Vermont made the return to my house in mega suburbia bittersweet. By the way, kudos to the graduate!
This meandering river, the Murchison, is one of the longest in Australia. Here it winds through a red rock gorge before flowing into the Indian Ocean. People say the rock formation in the center of the river resembles the head of a hawk.
The afternoon light meant everything in this shot of a coastal marsh in North Carolina.
