Big Talbot Island SP is a sometime mecca for photographers.   As weather and storms lash at the sandy soil, trees closest to the beach are undermined and topple onto it.  The forest is being eroded in this way so that it's rare to ever see things as they were a month or two ago.   But, on yesterday's visit, I photographed the ocean as well as some of the debris on shore.  The tide was out, and this little island was revealed at its lowest ebb.  After an hour and a half or so, it was submerged again as the tide came creeping back. The second photograph is of a piece of fallen tree that was just to the right of the little island.

I like these two. The little island in particular. The severe absolute, straight, horizon line, dividing the space is another interesting element. I like the sense of tide, and movement in the waves. I can still recall at will, the sound and smell of our summer river. Water lapping against the pilings of the big pier.

Thanks, Dottie. I, too, remember the river...swimming in it, floating on it, and walking beside it with its tidal approach and retreat. We were very lucky.
