A still morning

One of the nicer things about winter is the lack of crowds. Another is the bay on cold, still mornings where it seems to be in hibernation, breathing lightly. This morning the faintest of pulse-like wavelets, arriving on an island of sand at low tide, and wrapping their energy gently around them.

I stood there for a while, filming it, and taking it in.

Ripples

The same night, a little further along the beach, a sandbank with tiny waves flickering along, transparent and alive as little fish.

I found it very calming, for a few minutes, to watch these lines of energy arriving and dispersing in the late afternoon sun.

I recommend looping this!

 

Bird Rock Ambience

Another short video from my walk at the beach the other day (see Yellow Flipper!).  I thought the way the water seemed to swell and have an energy invisible and all its own was both hypnotic and somehow soothing, so I’ve looped it together a few times. To be played in times of stress!
