To Dream by dogbreathphotography

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
-Roald Dahl

This particular evening on this particular beach with this particular, magic little dog was easily one of my very favorite moments in recent history.

We had an unbelievable day on the beach together, splashing and playing and giggling until our sides hurt. But soon the day turned into afternoon, and the afternoon shifted into evening.

As the sun dipped it’s fiery head towards the horizon, it sent rays of yellow light pouring across the earth. I think we all stood there in awe for just a minute – Jessa too. We paused – staring, mouths agape, trying to grasp all of the perfection in that tiny moment. How lucky we were to be alive under that fairytale sky. It was like the whole world was awash in flecks of gold, glittering and sparkling as we spun and spun on it’s axis.

And just at that moment, Jessa lifted her head to dream. I put my eye to my camera and knew at that moment, all was perfectly, completely right with the world.

The Dawn Of Time by susanblickphotography

In the beginning, 56 million years ago the crystallization of calcium and carbonates around charged particles gradually formed these boulders in a pearl-like process that took as long as four million years. The soft mudstone containing the boulders was raised from the seabed around 15 million years ago; waves, wind and rain are excavating them one by one.
