Isolating countries,
Leaders’ political gain.

Brilliant intuitive thoughts.

Thank you to Sonya of Only 100 Words for coming up with Three Line Tales.

The TLT rules are simple:

  • Take a look at the photo prompt and write three lines to go with it.
  • Your lines can be poetry, micro-fiction, micro non-fiction or just a really long caption – everything goes as long as it’s three lines long.
  • A link back to this post would be nice (it’ll make me feel obliged to swing by yours to read your three lines, and some of your readers might want to join in, too – the more, the merrier, right?).
  • Tag your post with 3LineTales – it’ll make it easier for others to find it in the Reader.
  • Read other participants’ lines.

Please check Sonya’s post Three Line Tales Detailed Instructions for the full explanation.

A Day at the Beach

Frozen desert (not dessert)

As Winter is beginning to reliquish its grip on New England, a look back at a beach visit from last year.

Desert Oasis

In 2015, the end of January was particularly cold and snow-filled, which made the last day of the month a perfect time to go visit the beach.  There were many wonderful snow images, but this one stood a bit apart for me.

While wandering around the beach, I noticed that there were some areas where the receding water had left some rather interesting formations in the sand.  Striations in the sand combined with the semi-solid salt water from the cold, created this wonderful view from a low angle (I laid down to get this angle).  To my eye, this felt like looking over a sand dune toward the edge of a desert oasis, an interesting juxtaposition to the extreme cold of the day!

Hope you enjoy it as well!

This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D MkIII using a 25-105mm f/4L lens at 105mm.  Shutter speed was 1/60 second at f/10 and 250 ISO.
