Weekly photo challenge: Time after time

Time after time

The sun rises, the sun sets

The ocean rolls on

Driftwood finds its way onto the beach

And photo opportunities present themselves.


For this week’s photo challenge we are asked to think about time and portray it photographically.

These photos were taken while I was on the beach, at sunrise, with a group of Rotary Youth Exchange students.  They have a saying that Exchange isn’t a year in your life, it’s a lifetime in a year.  Time is what you make it!

My usual sunrises are of the hill in my town, so I love the change of scenery. Driftwood was piled on the beach and someone had made a structure like a cubby house and it gave me a great idea to capture the sunrise for this week’s challenge.  I hope you like my offerings.

I love the quote from Matt Haig’s Reasons to stay alive, that Lignum Draco photographed in his post –  How to stop time: kiss. How to travel in time: read. How to escape time: music.  How to feel time: write. How to release time: breathe.

Use your time wisely!

Deb 🙂

    Gorgeous photos, Deb. The one with the Sun’s rays over the horizon is stunning.

      Thanks Tom. I like that one too. Most of them are unedited but I admit to highlighting that particular photo a bit to enhance the rays. (I hope that’s allowed!)

    Beautiful photoset Debbie, I am landlocked so don’t spend much time at the beach – shame as I just love the sea.

      I live in the mountains so getting to the sea is a real treat. I always make sure that I take every opportunity to enjoy it when I get there. Thanks for the lovely comment, it means a lot.
