Yesterday, I rousted my self up bright and early. I hadn’t been doing that lately, and I was determined to get up and walk to the beach before the noon day sun made its way across the sky. I’ve been lazy. Ugh!
The beach has been revamped since the Hurricane Sandy devastation, so it’s been a trek in itself to get from the seawall to the water’s edge, but my feet finally touched down on the ripples by 6:45. I walked with the sun to my back. There were a few runners, walkers, fishermen, and dogs. It had its usual meditative quality. That’s a good thing and it made for a great morning.
I could feel the sun on my shoulders and hear gulls laughing. They were laughing at me. They have seen me there enough times, trying like crazy to get off a picture of one of them that I thought worthy of publishing on my post. Those birds are fast!
The heat sensation was stronger than their mocking laughter, so I turned to look, ignoring those little hyenas. Gulls were circling, coasting, dive-bombing. This time, I wasn’t concerned with getting off a shot of them.
No matter what your beliefs, no matter how you imagine we got here, no matter how you think this was created, this world, my friends, is a masterpiece.

It’s a beauty and a Masterpiece !
Thanks, neighbor. 🙂
Oh I agree with you. And thank you for taking me along for your walk this morning. Your words made me feel I was right there with you.
Thought of you and hoped you felt it. So much beauty. So serene. Have a great day, Colline.
how great that Life rewarded you for getting out early and tapping into the beauty of the morning! i never regret those early-morning walks, and there seems to be an award patiently waiting to smile – or wink at me! you receive a warm embrace from the Master!
Nicely put. Warm embrace. Yes.
Have a peace-filled day, amiga.
That, my friend, is as masterly a piece of photography as I’ve ever seen. I’m pinching it as background on my laptop so I can look at it every day, if I may? 🙂
I would be honored to have you pinch me to your background. 😉
It looks totally serene and wonderful. Thank you 🙂
Masterpiece of a shot, for sure. Mornings are the best. They are their own reward.
Looking at that whole scene made me feel lucky – and blessed. You know? Yup, you do. ❤
I share your view that the world is a masterpiece. Great photo.
Thank you, moongirl. The night time celestial view can be a masterpiece as well. I just can’t figure out how to get a night shot off with my nikon :-D. I’m working on it. I appreciate the visit.
We agree with you that this world is a masterpiece and we agree with Him when He said, “It is good!” and rested. What a great photo and beautiful sentiment. Have a blessed day.
Via con dios, amigos. 🙂
That is definitely a beautiful shot.
Completely agree with you about the world being a masterpiece – and you’ve caught that gull just right relative to the sun – its wings mirror our star’s shape ->>> and I’m a gull lover – grew up alongside them, they were always there! A
I finally got one! Little as it is. 😀
Indeed it is. A masterpiece that we are all blessed to have. Beautiful post!
An absolute masterpiece, Gemma. How lovely!
Thank you, Marianne!
Wonderful pic for the challenge, Gemma.
Bits between travel! :-D. I love it!
I’m in England right now with my MiL. She’s amazing. 🙂
I’ve noticed ;-).
Wish her a happy birthday and have a wonderful time.

Thanks, Jen. ❤
