It Is Only So...




...the rock does as the rock

... the tree does as the tree

... the sea does as the sea




 



 


... you do as you   ...I do as me

Gwen, those are gorgeous shots!

Guillaume said...

Lovely pictures (I know, I say that all the time). I just came back from Brittany, where the sights are often gorgeous, and this is just as great.

Shelley said...

Oh Gwen these shots are so beautiful! How I miss the beach. As I hear yet another Police cruiser and Ambulance sirens as they wail I envy you and Kathi.
Just Sunday we were commenting it was a 'St. Martins' day as we call them....but alas we didn't go in that direction. Instead we headed to the noise and bustle of the city. I do miss my 'cottage' by the shore.
Take care my Seaside Friend - see you soon we hope.

Ah, such a life you lead my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Funny thing, after reading the Shipping News, i wanted/want to go to New Foundland, now I think it may be that I need to go to New Brunswick!

Great photos and the area looks like it would make good field trip for geologists?

What beautiful words to match amazing photos! Such a beautiful place to visit. Thank you for sharing this lovely place with us. I hope you and your family had a beautiful Holiday Season!!

The stillness, the cold, wind whipped seascapes have such beauty it's a priviledge to happen upon. Often unknown to summer only wanderers. The subdued colours too.

Beautiful photos. Happy New Year!

Gwen Buchanan said...

Yes it is a geologists dream... the layers of time can easily be examined as the earth has thrust up in a sideways direction...

a while back, a professor from Boston, used to bring his students up to study Fundy a couple times a year.

such beautiful photos-- and yes we are all individuals.
happy new year in 2010!

Owen said...

Oooohhh... gorgeous post Gwen !

Love the peace that flows here in words and images. Especially the dead tree pointing up like a spear toward the sky...

Take care and all our best wishes to you for a creatively inspired 2010...

Debbi said...

Are those incredible photos taken in the warmer weather, or more recently? It looks so warm and inviting to me. Maybe it's just wishful thinking! Happy New Year to you Gwen.

Gwen Buchanan said...

.. these photos were taken back in early November, when the weather lured us over for a little exploring...

Hope everyone is getting settled in to 2010...
