  1. Dear Jodi, Once again such evocative, atmospheric pictures. I love the wild sea - so much more interesting than Brighton beach! You do live in a superb landscape.

    The quotation fits perfectly and gives meaning to the images.

  2. Dear Jodi, those are poignant words for this wordless post! The lashing,fretting and blinding describes the scene well. Love the lighthouse standing strong and tall against the onslaught.

  5. Love the green you caught in the last photo. Looks a bit wild for swimming -- and nippy!

  6. Wonderful pictures Jodi. The wave of icy blue in the third photo chills and draws me in at the same time!

  7. Those clouds in the first photo look like a storm might be moving in. Love seeing the sun shine.

  8. Nice shot of the beach and ocean Jodi. The wave seems choppy but the sky is clear. I hope you have had a good time there.

  11. LOL, the trouble with Wordless Wednesday is that it doesn't leave any room for WORDS. This is L'anse Amour (Love Cove) in southeastern Labrador, part of Newfoundland, our most eastern province. Newfoundland is an island, but Labrador is attached to the continent (joined to northern Quebec). It's quite remote there but stunningly beautiful. We were there in late summer two years ago on a planthunting expedition, and coming back from Battle Harbour (a national historic site set on an island), the wind picked up. And it blew for several days with great enthusiasm. The wind blows here, but I'd never seen anything like it was there except during a hurricane here. This was apparently not all that bad a gale. :-) Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are a hardy sort. The quotation is from the Ode to Newfoundland, the provincial anthem.

  12. Beautiful photos. I have a friend who travels around visiting lighthouses. I wonder if she's seen this one.

  16. Gorgeous, jodi. I've seen several tourism promos on TV recently for NL and Labrador and truly, the landscape looks like it could be another planet. I would love to visit someday, especially the National Parks. Wonderful, moody photos. :) Enjoy this sun!

  17. Fantastic pictures. I don't know that I'd like to live really close to the ocean but have always lived within a comfortable driving distance. Thank goodness because sometimes I just miss it and need to go get my 'ocean fix' for the year. I lived within an hour when I was in high school and we would stuff my car full of people and take off for the beach in the summer.

  18. What a pretty lighthouse. I love when the waves are huge and crashing on the beach, I can almost hear the sound of them looking at your pictures. Here the waves are so small on our Washington beaches.

  19. Hi Jodi - there's nothing like a good walk along the beach when a storm is brewing... reminds me a bit of the beaches on the Lizard in Cornwall... beautiful!

  20. That water looks cold! I remember how cold the water was when we lived in Southern Maine - in the summer!Beautiful photos, though.

  21. I walk on the beach sounds so good today. Walking with the sand squishing between your toes, the sound of waves. Beats blizzard like winds and slanting snow any day.

  22. For years my husband has been saying we need to visit your neck of the woods to trace his ancestry. As I read your blog I can understand why. Beautiful! Beautiful! Maybe this spring ...

    Jodi, I need the name/url option if you are to link to my blog from here. You can get there by clicking on "view my web page" on my Google profile. I apologize for my 'link' problems.

  23. The post color treatment is marvelous. I love the tranquility in the photos. I am tempted to post some areas in the Philippines which is in the Northernmost part, less visited by people and have few inhabitants. The group of islands somehow looks like these photos. We sometimes equate it with Ireland or Scotland though.

  24. "We love thee New-found-land!"

    I love my home province. It's like another world. Thanks for the memory trip.

  25. Nice shots, Jodi. Therapeutic in fact considering the white landscape I keep seeing in blog world today. LOL No problem about the email. I knew you were busy. Stay warm.

  26. I do love a storm, especially at sea.In fact, your post has reminded me that I have some storm pictures somewhere. I might dig them out; they'll remind me that the current bad weather here is but a mere trifle!

  27. Stunning, jodi ... perfect!

  28. I miss the ocean so... thanks for such wonderful pictures of its wild, shimmering, blue-green beauty. I think you must live in an amazing place, Jodi. :)

  29. Jodi, I can sense the power of the sea! I imagine standing there inside your fabulous photos on the shore with the salt air filling my pores and lungs... the sounds... then standing beneath that towering lighthouse! What breathtaking photography! The light on the house and water... You are so lucky to be near this landscape of wonder and majesty. ;>)

  30. Beautiful shots! The Lighthouse looks grand, and the sea mood appears to be roaring n raging in the last photograph. Loved the sound of the lashing wave.
