sounds of nature

I checked the tide charts this morning to confirm it was a good morning for a walk on the beach. Low tide at Newburyport was a bit past noon; a morning walk along the ocean called to me.

The Parker River National Wildlife Refuge was my destination today. I walked on both the inland side of the refuge and along the coast, listening as the ocean and the wind created a sort of music.

It was an interesting light day with the sun alternating between hiding behind clouds and shining strongly, the ground switching from light to dark and back to light again.

The front portion of the photo above - up to the line just past the shoreline - is in the shade; the back portion is in bright sunlight.

A few more photos from today can be found in the gallery Parker River - 2013 starting with this photo and ending here.
