Sea and sky

img_0609It was one of those afternoons when the sky and sea met in a particularly glorious way. The February light was razor-sharp and the sun was still pale, giving everything a silvery sheen. This is Sandy Neck beach in Barnstable, on Cape Cod.

img_0604There was some big league kite-flying going on.  So pretty against the sky and clouds.


This kite was waaaaay up. Kite-flying is prohibited at this beach in the summer, but in the winter, it’s dogs and kites and endless possibilities.

Speaking of possibilities, I spotted this on my way back to the parking lot. I wonder if it was meant for me. (I’ve been feeling kind of defeated lately.)

    Your photos always take me away, DN. They’re wonderful. And I agree with Imcl — that message was meant for you. Defeat isn’t an option. ❤

      Thanks CJ! It’s hard to take a bad photo on the Cape on a day like that. As for that stone, I felt compelled to photograph it, so there must be something there.
