Waiting for sunset at the beach.

My dearly beloved swears I will take a photo of just about anything.  While waiting for the sun to begin to set I did exactly that.




Evidence man's best friend had paid a visit.



Even my sandals are not safe from the camera lens.


I'm practicing for the new camera, sweetie.


Bored, my DB left me to snap away.


Around here flying the American flag is a must.

 

I seem to take a decent amount of photos of the 
dune fencing, summer or winter.
They just seem to make for interesting pictures.


Almost there.




Worth the wait. 


Summer has just sailed on by hasn't it?


Have a great week everyone.

Beautiful pictures!! I love the fences, especially the last one after the sun has set!! My hubby has been wondering about me and my choice of pictures too!!! :) I think that if you want, you make anything into a great picture!!

Oh my, thank you for this beauty. One thing we don't have at our beaches is dune fencing...sigh...so I can't get enough of yours.

Love your cutie patootie sandles too...and all those american flags waving in the ocean breeze is a symbol of hope for our nation.

Do you use photoshop? How do you get that soft pastel look to your photos?

Rita,
Those were absolutely beautiful photos...
I so enjoyed them. Loved the one of your DB walking off in the distance.
Your new spoon design is great. I'm off to check your etsy to see if it's available. Love ships - great design. You are so talented.
Happy to see you pulled yourself away from your orders to go and take these beautiful photos.
Wish I were there....

La Dolfina said...

I'm back from your etsy where the above spoon is not yet available... so I am requesting a custom order of that sailing ship please!
I love it!!!!!!!

Rita Stunning!!
You take my HEART to another place!
I too love old beachside fences laying down and on there last leg of life, in fact my dream house is a beach cottage beach grass, and an old falling down beach fence going nowhere :)

You have out done yourself girl with your photos of your wonderful life at the beach!!
seeing through your lens I almost felt I was their :)

Rita, that first fence photograph is just so gorgeous!!! And I can't believe you stamped such an elaborate sailboat on the spoon -it's fantastic!!

{Amanda} said...

Your photos are fantastic! I love the spoon. There's something wonderful about catching beauty in the unexpected. Gorgeous! ♥

So glad that I found your blog!

You have a wonderful eye for sweet little vignettes. So autumn is on its way? Could be a good break and maybe hurricanes won't be all that fierce this year?......

Love your photos....They are beautiful. What a lovely post... !!

Julie@beingRUBY said...

Hi Rita
Thanks for the message... this move has been frustrating for me on so many levels... in fact I hate to admit it.. but I am yet to find the good points...

I wonder if my blog issues are related to my internet.. or that I changed my html to a 3 column layout and perhaps mucked up the code .. hmmm.. must try to fix it... Thanks again.. xxx Julie

simpledaisy said...

Oh my....absolutely gorgeous:) :)
I love the sunset dune fence...stunning!

Heaven's Walk - said...

Oh, Rita.....these photos are just gorgeous. I think the first one could very well be framed! So pretty. So nostalgic now that summer is slowly fading into our memories. So sad....So I will return to look at your photos again and hang on to August as long as I can. :)

You have such a good eye! I especially love the pictures of the fence with the glow of the sunset behind...ahhhhh. Gotta love a sunset at the beach.:) I'm going to go spray my coconut suntan lotion on and drink a pina colada...

LOVE the dune fencing! Especially the shot of the sunset through highlight through the windswept leaning pickets. We don't have dune fencing here, and I do agree with you, very beautiful in its' own unique way! Thanks for sharing -
