Love is in the air

*


Love is in the air...









I dragged my Beloved
out of bed
early one morning this week
on the pretext of finding whales














the sun was battling
with the clouds
for supremacy
in the 6am sky










 



but the mood was mellow
there were very few people about
and
the day was warm
it was great to be up
and looking over
the mighty Pacific
which is called the Tasman Sea
between Australia
and New Zealand











 



it was a whale free morning
but love was in the air















on the sand
and in the skies














the next day
was also whale free








 



but a little boat
bobbed on the swell










 



the ocean frothed
and foamed
onto the rocks








 



and a small magpie lark
called a Peewee
watched the sea








 


and then watched me
He is a male peewee
the female has a white face









 



 and he lives in a mud and grass nest
on a horizontal branch
near or over the water






Love is in the air
on the sand
and in the skies...

  1. Delwin, something magical happens here every day. You have the good fortune to have spectacular vistas to photograph; you have acute skills of observation; and, you lovingly offer these for us to enjoy, way across the same ocean. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    In this kind of atmosphere, what other emotion could possibly dominate?

    A beautiful sense of calm and holding hands with the surroundings.

  8. Hello Martin

    you are right - it is hard not to feel good and kind when surrounded by beauty and wonder and good fortune...

    I love your 'holding hands' comment,

    Happy days

  9. I enjoyed the changes in your ocean views Delwyn. The heavy cloud covering created a mellow dreamy look for your photos, one that was appropriate for viewing the love rocks, a perfect postcard look! Someone was very artistic and energetic!

    Luv and Smiles,

  10. Hi Wanda

    when you see the photos juxtaposed like that you notice the contrast, how the skies and sea colour can change so dramatically...over 24 hours.
    That same someone created a different message the next day...but I'll save that for another post...


    Happy days

  11. I never get tired of seeing pictures of your coastline - beautiful!

  12. Hi Delwyn: I really like those first three shots - they are dreamy and mystical. I would frame them and hang them somewhere, they appeal so to my eye.

    You had me going there Delwyn - husband, ocean, alone at the beach, telling us love was in the air, I was expecting some out-of-character departure from you . . . some brazen shot of you and your DH in full embrace with the surf pounding in the background . . .
    ahhhh . . . the stories I construct in my head . . .

    Have a good rest - I'm sure there will be more whale spotting on the agenda tomorrow. Hope you find your heart's desire there in the Tasman Sea.

  13. Yes, love is everywhere, if you open your heart and mind. You just happen to live in one of the most beautiful place on earth, so it is easier to see it with the naked eye.

    Happy days to you!

    Hugs,
    Angela

  14. I love seeing the ocean through your eyes. As a child and young adult, I visited it regularly but now I live far away from any coast. I dreamed last night of a walk on the beach, and then I saw your photos this morning. Just beautiful...

  15. This post just sings of spring to me. It's strangely wonderful to be so thoroughly enjoying autumn here while you are having the spring experience. And I like the fact that you have a clock on your page; I enjoy thinking about the difference in our days.

    I'm glad to have met you, Delwyn, and as always, thank you for sharing your lovely world.

  16. Don't you just wonder who set up those LOVE rocks and what their story is?
    You are so blessed... what a stunning view and a sweet love to share it with.

  19. Hi Delwyn.

    Love is in the air there and everywhere. But out there maybe more, since spring has arrived, while here we have autumn. Not that I don’t like autumn. I do. And I like cold weather, which allows mortals to eat and drink more and better and to tell tales in front of a fireplace.

    Really beautiful pictures and words from a woman's soul.

  20. An open invitation to walk along for a perfectly intimate moment, that is both private and yet meant to be shared at the same time :) Simply beautiful. As amazing as the photos are, its your words that helped completely carry me away!

  21. I so love to see the pictures of the ocean, sand and your wonderful inhabitants. That Peewee is a new one for me, but then most of your flora, fauna, and birds are. You bet...love is in the air!

  26. Hi Rosey

    another message appeared the next day ... I wonder who it was...usually only young people scramble down to that beach, or surfers but I'd imagine it was young ones in love...

  27. Hi Polly

    Our spring is really only spring by name...the temperatures quickly jump up and are now around 25* and 31* expected later in the week...the nights are still a little cooler so it is a beautiful time of year. Walking in summer means a very early start...before the heat of the day arrives...

    Happy days

  30. Hi Delwyn~ Love at sunrise! the sky and water couldn't have turned bluer and crystal clear after the 6am beginnings. Even the peewee is cobalt blue! But who could ordain that message on the beach on your morning walk? Beautiful today.

  31. Hi Bonnie

    Ahhh you have let the song run away with you Bonnie ...that would be very out of character...

    I could not want for more...

  33. Hi Margaret

    the shots were of two consecutive days...no the clouds didn't clear so quickly...

    the sea gods have been at work...Jove and Neptune conspiring together...

  36. Wow, your climate sounds a lot like Louisiana. "Winter" there is rarely cold, and spring starts in February, summer in about May, and by June, you hardly want to go outside after 9 in the morning.

    After I moved to New Mexico, it took me a couple of years to get used to the fact that spring here doesn't really start until late April.

    What a wonderful, varied world we live in!

  37. Love may be in the air, but great photos are on your blog!

    Especially the first one, that tree was fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The difference in the color and light that you captured between the two days is fantasic. I liked the playfulness of your post.

  40. Hi Donna

    I wish I was going too...

  51. Hi Tracy

    yes I live on a river that flows into the sea which is only a couple of minutes away...Noosa is a beautiful and popular tourist town 1/2 way up the eastern coast of AU. Hot in the summer but not too hot... and lovely winters.

  53. Hate to be the one that disturbs the serenity of an early morning sunrise on the sea, but our little bird is actually a Pied Butcherbird - beautiful song.
