Popham Beach Reflections

In January I crave open spaces,

To walk beyond snow and ice,

Past tidal pools to the surf,

Where sea fragments sky,

And sun defies winter,

By casting golden shadows,

Inspiring contemplation and hope.

Beautiful images, Sarah. It's remarkable how the cozy feeling of warmth and a fireplace in winter benefits from the contrast of a brisk walk in open space. Have a lovely new year!

I always love your sea and beach photos, particularly love the third and fourth ones!! You are so lucky to have such a beautiful beach close to your house!! Your words are beautiful too.
I was surprised by the temperature there(your former post). It is much colder here this year than last year. Take care, Sarah!!

Such tranquil thoughts Sarah. Happy Belated New Year to you. Looking at these lovely beach pictures I can't help but think it will be a wonderful year.

Stunning photos! I came across your comments on Prince Snow Farm. I love Maine, and just purchased a summer home in Castine.
Cheers from DC,

Your images are not just beautiful but they also invite to an act of deep meditation. I tell, if I lived there I would probably become a "mystic" or something! :-)

Greetings from London.

Cynthia, Happy New Year to you too! It’s good to see you back to blogging.

Sapphire, it’s a bit over a half hour drive away. I thought you’d like the abstract one. We’re in another cold snap of sub zero nights and single digit days. I don’t go out for long.

Les and Donna, thanks!

Tina, Happy New Year!

Loi, welcome to my blog and to Maine! I enjoyed visiting your blog too.

ACIL, the winter sea is meditative.

Kacky, I assume you mean my dog and not m husband? Scout is growing up quickly, but she still act like a puppy. She waded into frigid water!

Beautiful poetry and photos, Sarah! Winter does have its own special beauty, but it's hard to appreciate it after days of bone-numbing cold. Thanks for the reminder!

What a fantastic way to spend the afternoon, enjoying those beautiful views. I think the 4th photo is my favorite - it begs to be studied.

Lovely! Gorgeous views and beautiful words to go with them.

These images are remarkable and the accompanying words as well......the sea does fragment the sky.
