Looking at the Sun


Nature is watching us all the time.
The more I can look back, the more I know.

Sometimes I think the reason the sun returns every day is because it knows we love it so much. Sometimes I think it's just science (but that is barely ever). 

I think the sun watches us as we play in its light.

I am happy it takes turns with the moon.
I long for them both to have an impact on me.

 I sit in the sea as the sun begins to do the same, a part of the food chain. I can't help myself. This is where I belong. With the silvery swimming sharks looking at what they want to see; with the whales and dolphins that know the earth has no edges. 

I love how the sun comes and goes, making no sound at all. 

It watches me as I end my day with pleasure and peace.

  4. Absolutely stunning pictures Devon. I especially love the one of you paddling and smiling at the camera, and the ones of you on the waves. Fantastic. And the man with the bird is well captured too. It does sound so peaceful. Whatever else is happening in the world, the waves keep pounding onto the shore.
