The many moods of Hartlen.



As you know, I live very close to Hartlen Point, and often walk there with the dogs.  I love that the same place is different every time I visit.


The scenery there changes not only with the seasons, but also with the time of day,


as the tides come and go.


I love how fog smooths the edges of the world and traps the scents and sounds.


Things appear so much sharper on a bright winter's day.


The ocean can change from rolling, 


   to flat, as the winds ease.


It's a special place.  


And I'm not the only one who thinks so.

  1. I can understand how you must feel when visitng Hartlen Point, I have a few places in my area where I live that are my special places too. Isn't it wonderful to be able to share our favourite places across the internet? And look at Trey, he loves Hartlen Point too! Joanne. :)

  2. Sybil, these are some very nice pictures of the place that you visit so often. I can imagine the area as serene. It looks a tad desolate right now since it is still winter.

    1. It can be a tad desolate but lovely too. I love it in summer when the wild iris are blooming along the cliff-edge.

  3. I have a confession. I was just going to do a scrolling catch-up and pop in at the end to say hi...but I had to stop already to tell you how much I love this one. It's always wonderful to visit the same place through different seasons, but you have brought home the 'aliveness' of the ocean here and so beautifully.

  4. You are definitely not the only one who thinks so! I love how you captured the high and low tides, the calm and rolling waves, and the foggy and clear weather, all from the same vantage point. The ocean and shoreline are forever changing but always compelling...

    1. Rosie, that's one of the reasons I love it: it changes so much each time I visit.
