Blurred lines

The latest snowfall created blurred lines between land and sea, making it difficult to distinguish where the shoreline ended and the ocean began. The land appeared to continue into the horizon, although sky blue provided some definition to the setting.

 


 

 

 

 
                                                  The beach is a meter from the trees. 

There were human footprints on the bay. Animal tracks went down to the shoreline too. Another walker saw a fox on the ice, about fifty meters from shore.

Blurred lines make land and sea available to everyone.

I see that phenomenon around here on grey days, but you captured it beautifully and make it look like a fairyland. :-)

Those are neat pictures...very pretty. Same goes with our lakes here...you would think they were just a snowy field. (But not trustworthy for walking on as it is not as cold as your area). Andrea

I like the blurred lines.

Like seeing a whole different country inside your country. Sometimes during the snow season our small mountains and foothills look like they are under gigantic peaks.

It was beautiful, Jan.

I wouldn't walk on that ice either, Andrea.

It was so unusual, AC.

The ice and so do indeed change everything, Celia.

The bare trees are one of my favourite things, Tomoko.

Lost in the whiteness.

It is indeed, Tabor.

Isn't this a wonderful phenomenon when land and sea blend together? Looks very nice with the pristine snow that covers the landscape.

Scenes like this of so much snow are very beautiful to see. For me they create a good mystery of what's under all that white.

It was a beautiful scene that day, Judith.

Marie Smith said...

Lots of animals underneath I think, Ratty.

Marie, Thank you so much for visiting/commenting on my blog. I can't say that I have ever seen anything like these photographs. Absolutely stunning. We once had a home in the woods by a creek and that is the only time I've seen a fox. Where we live now in north GA, we see deer and an occasional black bear.
I have signed on to follow and look forward to browsing back thru your posts. Have a blessed Sat. Mildred

We don't have deer or black bears on this island, Mildred. We don't have anything larger than a coyote.

I will enjoy learning about your part of the U.S. Take care!

Beautiful pictures, even if the horizon is hard to distinguish.

Marie Smith said...

Blurred lines for sure, FG.

It looks beautiful you really can't see where the sea starts! Sarah x

It was an unusual sight, Sarah.
