Towards the Sunset (Weekend Reflections # 87)

Cape May, New Jersey (Sunset Beach) A pool of reflected sunshine next to jetty and an old shipwreck in the water.

Hopefully I'll be on the road headed towards the sunset when this post comes out but I'll probably be still waiting for the movers to arrive. Weekend Reflections is on auto-pilot until mid June. I'll be posting from the road at Something Sighted when I get the chance. Maybe from St. Louis or Oklahoma City, Santa Fe or a small town that I've never heard of? Westward Ho!







If needed, please click the link in the top right corner for Weekend Reflections instructions. Now, lets have some fun with Weekend Reflections!

Bon voyage, James!

Great picture. How exciting, an old shipwreck.

Malyss said...

I'm imagining you and Vic, like pioneers during the times they were conquering new territories westward..:o)What a great modern western movie it would be !:o))

More seriously, your picture is beautyful, and (maybe because of your situation)quite sad, like a farewell, with a lot of nostalgy.

Nice reflection, James, you are the master of reflection photography.

Love your photo. Hard to believe the shipwreck is still laying there.

With talk of movers, does this trip mean you're looking for a place to relocate to? Happy adventures.

Actually have never seen a shipwreck! This view stirs the imagination!
Hope all goes well with your move!

This photo is just calling to me. I can hear the waves rolling in. Ah....

Hope your move goes smoothly. Moving is in the top three stress causes, along with death and divorce. Just saying!

Good news! Our dog, Gunner is doing so much better. A matter of fact we managed to get out (between all the rain storms) and take some pictures. Stop by to see my reflection for this week.

We were in Cape May a few years ago. My son is in the Coast Guard and we went to his graduation in October. What a beautiful place.

Be well, happy and above all be safe on your journey westward.

Safe travelling! It is super of you to think about us while you have so much going on.

Hilda said...

I love that little golden pool. And the wonderful textures of everything!

Have a safe trip and may your new home bring you many delights – and lots of pictures!

'Tsuki said...

That is quite an unsual comppostion, James... But I like how the gold of the sun is reflected on the wet sand in one side and not on the second...

I hope everything about your moving is okay, and that you take lovely pictures to share them with us after the mid-june...

I whish you the best ; please come back to us as soon as you can't : we miss you !

:D

I'm a little late for this week's reflections--I was wondering if you could add my link to this week's linky list. The link is http://theabandonedlec.blogspot.com/2011/05/graffiti-in-glorylight-weekend.html

I love this week's reflection, James. You have such a talented eye for photography. I enjoy each and every photo you have on your blog. I don't always make a comment, but I do come by to take a gander. You are an inspiration!

That's an astonishing photo, James. And in a different style from usual too. I wouldn't have recognised it as one of yours.

It does interesting things to my eyes - they sort of stick out forward, then withdraw, then go forward to the wreck again. Appropriate, I suppose, along the edge of the tide. I can feel the muscles along my cheek bones move.

Wonderful photo! I visited Cape May several years ago when my son graduated from basic training for the US Coast Guard. I hope to go back and thoroughly explore the area one day. Safe travels!
