Skywatch Friday







Robert Moses State Park, Long Island

June 2008

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Do the clouds copy the form of the breaking waves? Or is it vice-versa?

They do go hand in hand, don't they? It's such a peaceful, lovely scene.

Mary, how ever did you manage to get a beach shot without loads of people in New York? I love the shore, or at least I use to before they all got to built up and crowded.

Great shot...

The surf looks so-o-o inviting! I know the water is probably cold but my body feels so warm.

Hi Mary, I like your Skywatch Picture. I have a Skywatch picture for the weekend to sit on the PHOTO PLACE blog.
Did you go to creamation for that picture?
I've been slacking, but now I'm back a little bit. I missed the transition to your changing of the header picture from Coney Island to the end/beginning of the Subway from/to the train picture.

And I'm sorry, it isn't subway, my memory messed up.
It is the Water Sculpture. We have some of those in Houston.

I think they do. I have noticed this along treetops, too.

Mary, thanks for this image of the Sound. I love that body of water and haven't been all summer. I feel like I just received a postcard.

Ah, Robert Moses! Large portions of my misspent youth took place at Field 2, where every other blanket had a boom box blasting album-oriented rock from WBAB, and a vendor periodically schlepped through lugging a styrofoam cooler, yelling "ICE cold fudgie-wudgie bars!"

Thanks for the memories!

Raven said...

Gorgeous photo! And it brings back memories. Wonderful Skywatch.

Carletta said...

Now who wouldn't want to be there!

Great shot!

I know the tide is related to the sky, and I know that often waves and clouds match, a sign of God's symmetry at play maybe? Beautiful shot.

Ivanhoe said...

I'm not even watching the sky today, just mesmerized by the ocean :o)
Have a great weekend, teach!

Suzanne said...

This is a wonderful contribution to Sky watch. I hadnt realised it was Nelson Mandellas Birthday, hope it was a great day in your part of the world.

Sharon said...

Tommy V said...

Hello from Colorado. Nice SWF picture.

Maria said...

Beautiful soft colours! Love it!

quilly said...

The waves -- sky and sea -- are running the wrong way. With that tilt to the horizon, I imagine the sea is empty by now, anyway .... ;)

Seriously, I love the way the clouds and the wave foam looks the same. I think the clouds were mocking the sea.

cool beach! I love the waves and the clouds too...it mirrors each other, i guess.LOL.

Life in a Snapshot said...

I love the waves...our beaches here are calm. Seldom do I see a beach with such waves.

Greyscale Territory said...

This is so relaxing. Love how you have captured the waves tumbling in on the sands.

imac said...

Nice and peaceful.

The Team thanks you for posting at SW and helping to make this new venture a success.

Nice photo. I also like your tribute to Nelson Mandela.

My entry is here. Just some sunset photos after a very difficult day of travel.

Debbie said...

Yes, they do and I want to put my feet in the water and wiggle my toes! I love ocean shots!

Good job and why have I missed so many of your posts? Shame on me!!
