The Heart of the Great Ocean
Hear those mournful melodies;
Till my soul is full of longing
For the secret of the sea,
And the heart of the great ocean
Sends a thrilling pulse through me. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Hello blog friends, I'm back from vacation...what a fantastic time we had. I took almost 900 photos with my "real" camera, and another 500 with my iPhone. I've only processed one photo so far - I think I'll be busy editing for awhile. Of course, you know how it is - out of all those photos, I'll like maybe one out of every ten. I will definitely be sharing some of my favorites here on my blog for the rest of the summer!
As always, being near the ocean reduced my stress significantly...there's something about that salty air and the sound of the waves. It soothes the spirit. Hilton Head Island, SC is truly one of our most favorite places in the world. I can't wait to go back! We've been going there on vacation for 11 years now. The clouds were spectacular this time around.
I'm linking up with Texture Tuesday today - I used Kim's "Touch of Two" texture at Soft Light/30% for this image. I also tweaked it in RadLab.
Thanks so much for stopping by - my summer schedule will still be busy for a few more weeks. The second half of August will finally slow down a bit and by then I hope to be blogging more regularly again. Have a great Tuesday!
