The edges of nature: When snow kisses the ocean

When it snows on Kodiak Island, something magic happens at high water. The black shale rocks are dusted with white, transforming them into tiny marshmallows. Then as the tide recedes, the snow is raked into the ocean, leaving a straight, horizontal line along the beach. Offshore, winter storms paint the rocky outcroppings with layers of water that freeze like candle wax. I came upon this scene last weekend while walking along a cliff. I’d brought my camera and tripod, though the dull light wasn’t very inspiring. Still, a little voice kept nudging me along. “Go a little further, there’s something waiting for you.”

      Me, too. I’ve learned that if I don’t take my camera, nine times out of ten I regret it.
      Thanks for taking the time to send your note. Cheers, Marion

    Marion, that is a beautiful scene. How blessed you are to live in such a beautiful place. I checked out your FB page and loved the layout. I am thinking of doing a page for my photography also, and am wondering how you got the slide show in there. I did a slide show with music with my Photoshop Elements program, but it would not download into WordPress. I don’t know if it will in FB either.
