“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”
― Edward Hersey Richards

    Did you see the old movie with Spencer Tracy, THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA? I had forgotten all about it until your post.

  16. Isn't that just the most beautiful and serene shot? I can't decide whether I love sunrises or sunsets better. I think, on the beach, it's definitely the sunrise.

    And I love the way the waves are breaking around him as he fishes. This is lovely!

  29. I'm trying to figure out if he's standing in the water or on a tiny boat that I can't see! lol That sunset is breathtaking!!

    I'm up and running again, my laptop was completely dead, the tech guy said there was no life in it at all. So....today I went and bought a new laptop:-) Just finished configuring it all and installing my programs. I have my old desktop but it runs so slow most of the blogs wouldn't even load, it was driving me nuts! lol xoxo

  30. I agree, hummingbirds are so much fun to watch...have you ever seen two fighting? It's hilarious, almost as if they're doing a dance. They both go straight up and then dive bomb each other! lol You really got some terrific shots of her, just lovely.

    Congrats on the award, I love pretty much the same things you do:-) xoxo
