Sea Cairn


I made this last June while exploring the coast of Cape Cod with my niece. We reached the end of a trail that was high above the beach. Somehow, we managed to find our way down to the beach where this cairn rested. I like the peaceful nature of this image. Have a peaceful Sunday. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommas out there.

    I’m finding your lovely shot and the handsome cairn fairly profound. This has been a challenging time for all of us, and this reminds me that life is a balance of big things and little things. We probably should have expressed more gratitude before the rug was pulled out from under our feet. Lesson learned, but now I have to remember the grateful part. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a beautiful creation to find out on a walk. I love the symbolism of it and the stillness of the entire image. Really nice Chris!

    this is beautiful and magical ๐Ÿ™‚ I am following a Swedish youtuber who had an entire episode dedicated to the Nordic “stone balancing” and was explaining how it imitates life, you just figured things out and it all topples down only to teach you patience and resilience, then you start over… wonderful shot and post, Chris ๐Ÿ™‚ I am sure your niece enjoyed this very much ๐Ÿ™‚

    It is a straight throwback to the kind of wallpapers I used to have in my Windows, so simple, yet filled with significance, it reminded me of a poem by Lord Tennyson, ‘Ulysses’, this line particularly..
    “I am a part of all that I have met;

    Yet all experience is an arch wherethro’

    Gleams that untravell’d world whose margin fades

    For ever and forever when I move.”

      It would be a good wallpaper for a computer screen. You’re well read. It’s been a long time since I’ve read Tennyson. Those words to me always meant the great desire to travel and see the world.
