~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #191: Curves ~


So many gorgeous curves in my archives, and everywhere I look in the gardens. Thank you Anne Christine for an opportunity to show a few.

Pacific Ocean storm swells wheel steadily toward the bulging berm in the shot above, taken from the deck of our condominium at Long Beach, Washington. A metal sculpture (bicycle rack) points the way up the slightly curved pathway to the beach, while dune grass bends in the strong wind.

After storms pass, often the beach is strewn with tangles of bull kelp and stranded jellyfish. This small Moon Jelly baby, surrounded by foam bubbles is a favorite image. Maybe eight inches in diameter, it has all kinds of crooks, twists and loops.

From surfs edge to the fringe to the dunes. Below another Dune Rune image etched into the sand by night-writer Alloniscus.

Pacific Ocean shoreline, dunes and sky give us curves that challenge us, ground us and elevate us. Below an immature Bald Eagle lifts off from the beach.

Bald Eagle – Haliaeetus leucocephalus

Wherever you are, please honor our earth, continue to be kind and stay safe.🐾

    The Alloniscus is fantastic. The shore is always bustling with so much life. Seems funny it FEELS so quiet with the world at your feet. Very nice selections. Donna
