By the sea.......

Sunset by the sea

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky;

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by.

pretty sunset .. and like the dark sand alot .. beautiful verse .. the star that he mentions is the 'North Star' used for direction and navigation.

Kunal: delhi has its yamuna...doesn't it :DDDD

Mr. J said...

Lol!!.. You seem to have a natural 'inclination' to the left. :P

Sarad said...

mr.j: Tilt your head to the right and the symmetry in the pic looks even better.

Moi said...

Mr J: am no left-ist, by any chance...:)

Sarad: bang on!!! :)

Jen said...

Beautiful. As much as I love the mountains that we have here, I do wish at times that I lived near the ocean so I could experience the sunrises and sunsets there:)

Moi said...

Oya: welcome here :)

Annie: sea's beautiful..:)

zeekat : sunset's when skies are on fire.....

Radha, still : thanx :)

joan : hehe

jen :)...i miss mountains here...a case of divided loyalties!!! :)

Carmi said...

I completely agree with you: you MUST go down to the sea. Again and again. This image is so emotional, so pure. It takes me to a place that I love beyond words and makes me want to paint it for everyone I know who can't be here with me.

In a word, stunning. Thanks for posting this!

AphotoAday said...

Moi said...

Carmi : thanx......:)

aphotoaday: thanx and welcome here.........i totally and absolutely love ur blogs....:)

My very favorite poem. I love a gulf sunset too. Thank you so much for sharing. I grew up on the east coast of Florida and I am still in love with the Sea.
