The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls
I’ve always been drawn to water. Peaceful, it has the power to calm and sooth. Restless, and the reverse is true. Yesterday, the sea was tranquil. Today you can almost see the Kraken’s roiling limbs.
(This is another binaural recording, best listened to with headphones for the “3D” effect.)
Rows of Memorial Benches line the Brighton and Hove seaside: A peaceful place to sit and remember loved ones lost. Some of the benches are regularly decorated by the families.
Post title The Tide Rises, The Tide Falls inspired by the poem of the same name, by Longfellow.
I can almost smell the spray and hear the surf just looking at the pictures!
Thanks for your comment! It really is dramatic out there today.
Some fifty miles down the coast we shared the same storm….the sea in Brighton always seems so big somehow – I’ve done some swimming here in the past and there’s always a real rolling swell.
I was hoping to get out there this past summer, but it was so cold! Maybe I can pluck up the courage this summer.
