A World of Beaches – a Sunday Stills retrospective

For Terri’s Sunday Stills Beautiful Beaches. I began this challenge thinking, “oh I got THIS I am a beach kind of person.” I was rather surprised to find that most of my photos are of oceans and sunrise/sunsets over said oceans but not nearly as many shots of actual beaches as I expected. That being said, I did come up with a variety of beaches from around the world. So let’s dive in and get ourselves a dose of “Vitamin Sea.”

“One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.”

Watching clouds form at Lake Tahoe

Nothing soothes the soul like sand and water. Here watching clouds form over lake Tahoe.

South Jetty Beach, Florence Oregon

A vast expanse of white beach at South Jetty Beach near Florence, Oregon. No crowds, blue skies, white waves – what more could you ask for?

Resort Beach near Kapaa Island of Kauai

Oh yeah, color that’s what you could ask for color ;-). Here palms and landscaping mix and mingle with with natural sand and coral at a resort beach near Kapaa, Hawaii.

Beach at Kaikoura, NZ

Finally, the beach at Kaikoura, NZ. Snowcapped mountains in the distance, rocky shoreline, fur seal posing for his portrait. Ahhhh *insert sigh*

Til next time ~All that is gold does not glitter – JP

  1. Amazing, JP, and that you picked mountain and lake beaches to share. I love Lake Tahoe and hope to visit later this month while visiting my dad. As much as I love the beaches along the vitamin Sea, there is something so magical about lake beaches. Have a great week!

    1. Thank you Terri. I confess that I’m not really much of one for sandy white beaches with blazing sun and lots of people, which is odd considering I grew up around them (Redondo Union High School GO SEA HAWKS) lol. Give me a rocky coast or better yet a lake shore any day. 😉
