The Frozen Shoreline

A short visit to the beach says a lot!

The ice is just starting to touch the shoreline, here I stand upon it.
My Husband holding this poor Merganser that got caught up in the frozen waves with a hurt wing. We found him stuck in the sand and ice. May his wings be free of pain as he flies across the Rainbow Bridge.
A frozen space between sand and ice.
Frozen layers of sand lifting off of the ground with the ice flow.
A wider look a the circles of ice forming along the shoreline.
As far as our eyes can see.. Circles of ice multiply.. Like a magnificent array of frozen portals.. Dancing with the flow .. The waves in the under tow.. Whisper the sounds of swirling ice..

The ever changing shoreline blesses us with  the beauty of it’s changes! We never know what to expect when we go visit there which make the surprises extra special! I try to never go without my camera because one of my favorite parts of visiting the beach is taking photos!

I hope you enjoy the view as much as I do, with gratitude I love to share it with you ❤

Love, Tonya Marie

Capturing Moments


First cup of coffee

Looking and listening

To my surroundings

Across the way

The sound of a motor

Bogging down as it splits the wood

For winters cold………..


The wind carries with it

Voices of those I cannot see

Someone is hammering wood

In the distance……


The cool morning breeze

Blows through the window

As I sip my warm java

My attention is drawn to

The Magnificent Dragonfly’s 

Presence upon the screen

Like none I had ever seen before

Waiting for me to notice……


Everything grew silent

As I gazed upon him with his

Glistening wings, 

Colors of the earth 

Bold of green and burgundy….


We were one

If only for a moment

As a flash of heat came over me…


Capturing our time together

In my heart and on film

Knowing it may be our last


Some moments later

After walking away

Nature took its course

With the Dragonfly and the Bumble Bee……………… TMB
