Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Definition of Movement: (1) “the act or process of moving; especially: change of place or position or posture (2): a particular instance or manner of moving.”
~Merriam-Webster Dictionary 

What I’m showing you today is the RESULT of movement.  The action (movement) has already occurred. 
What you see below is the RESULT of movement of water and sand.
When Lake Superior’s wave action recedes from the beach, pulling and drawing sand with the water,
it leaves behind sand “sculptures”, where water rushed around rocks.

a beach on Michigan’s U.P.’s Keweenaw Peninsula.

The result of movement of the sand and water is like Nature’s Artwork on the beach.  

The miniature sculptures are fun to find,

and they remind us of the strength and power of water.

Nature’s Artwork….

 Thank you for taking the time to read my post!

Water Dragon Weekly Sunday Post: Landscape

The top of the Keweenaw Peninsula allows one a broad view.  The landscape of  undulating hills,  ponds, fir and deciduous forests,  and the coastline seems to go on forever in its beauty.   In addition, Lake Superior’s vastness adds to the feeling that one can see forever.

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn’t show.  ~Andrew Wyeth

Fall begins on the Keweenaw Peninsula's landscape.

Thanks for viewing my landscape….

Happy New Year, everyone!

Hello to my wonderful blog readers!

Another year has come to an end.  The sun is setting on 2011.  We must say good-bye to this year and all its ups and downs, its joys and sorrows, its celebrations and quiet times.  But a new year awaits us!  A brand new, fresh, sparkling year.

We have a fresh slate….    It’s time to start writing in the sand!

The Keweenaw Peninsula is known for its beautiful rocks, many with red
colors, due to the iron in the area.
