The Light by the Sea

Today is a cold rainy day in August. In fact, it could easily have been a day in November.
I was looking through my own pictures to match the light of Joaquín Sorolla’s wonderful paintings.
But I decided to deviate, with this summer image back in June 2015, where people were wearing overcoats.
Just like today 😀

The light on a Danish beach, Bellevue, 8. June, 2015.

After Bathing, date 1915. Spanish painter and university teacher, Joaquín Sorolla

The Fisherman, date 1904. Spanish painter and university teacher, Joaquín Sorolla

Time for a Bathe, Valencia, date 1909. Spanish painter and university teacher, Joaquín Sorolla

Valencian Fisherman, date 1895. Spanish painter and university teacher, Joaquín Sorolla

Shaken and Stirred

Fierce gusts made it difficult for me to keep my balance – on the ground 🤣

But some surfers had a tremendous play with waves.

Several were captured by the wind and hang for a moment what looked like 3 to 4 meters above the sea.

A Happy Change

I had a lovely shift in the weather yesterday:

A grey sky is broken,
by a fresh wind.
The smell of brine, and dog rose.
A new poem begins,
one full of play and white horses.
