Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist

September 17, 2014 Oregon 127


One of the thousands of gulls who kept company with me while I visited the Oregon coast, this one embodies peace in the midst of turmoil. 

The Pacific roars and crashes around us.  The gull keeps his balance and equanimity as waves come and go around the rock where he anchors.

Here on the edge of the continent, at sunset, on the cusp of autumn; the gulls gather to share their simple wisdom with whomever will notice them.

  2. My favorite is the second one with the light coming from behind and the wave breaking in front of him. I can almost hear the surf and smell the salt air.
