Weekly photo challenge: Sea

This week’s photo challenge is Sea. The sea is so many things to me.

It’s a great healer.

It’s wild.

It’s a source of life.

But the sea is also cruel and devastating. The wreck of the scallop dredger, the Solway Harvester now moored in Douglas Harbour is a sad reminder of the seven Scottish fisherman who lost their lives at sea in January 2000.

It’s a permanent mirror to the sky.

It’s versatile and can be fun.

I just know, close to the sea, that’s where I’ll be!

    Superb selection of photos! I love the sea. I also agree with it being a great healer – there were times in the Army in the Outer Hebrides where I fell out with someone and stormed, or lurched desolately, down to the beach. Within a short while of standing there in the dark listening to the waves coming in (and watching them), I felt much better and returned to camp happy and normal again 🙂
