Weirs Beach for Watery Wednesday




Today I am putting in my photo for the first time for Watery Wednesday ...I am new to this one so look forward to visiting you all. Check out all the watery photos at the Watery Wednesday site hosted by 2sweetnsaxy.

This photo is of Weirs Beach, taken on a windy day when the waves were crashing but the sky was blue so it was great for photos. The beach is normally bare and white sand but this day the storm had deposited large amounts of kelp and driftwood. In the distance you can see the city.

Lovely picture of the surf! Gorgeous scenery!

Bryan said...

Impressive shot. The colors are very enticing yet not overly vivid. The splintered wood is very interesting, and the pieces form their own shapes.

Arija said...

I'm glad you joined, this is a great little beach, perfect for beach-combing ... you would never run out of driftwood for the fire place or a BBQ on the beach. Just lovely.

I really like this picture. It looks like a deserted island--except for the city in the distance!

Ebie said...

Welcome to Watery Wednesday, it is a fun meme. I love the clear skies, so peaceful. Those drift wood is so popular where I am originally from, and we use those for decorative purposes too! Enjoy your week!

Welcome to Watery Wednesday! I'm so glad you decided to join in. This is a wonderful shot. That's a lot of drift wood. I've never seen a shore after a storm. This is amazing!

Kitty said...

I'd love to collect some of that driftwood! A beautiful place - and I didn't even notice the city in the background!

Oh, this is the second blog where there are driftwoods for today's meme. I love the shot here, driftwoods are nice to collect, we usually do it here and make some adornments or for decorative purposes as what Ebie mentioned.

Really beautiful scene...the colors are so crisp and clear. I think this is a scene worth photographing repeatedly in different weather conditions and seasons!

Sanna said...

How wonderful colours!

Tranquility said...

What a beautiful beach. Where is this located? The landscape looks very similar to S. Oregon's beaches. This is my first Watery Wednesday too. Great photo choice! ;)

Glennis said...

Must of been quite a nasty storm to deposit all that driftwood on the shore, Here people would go to the beach to collect the free fire wood; or at least I would!

msdewberry said...

What memories this picture invokes. Our family used to spend every summer camping at Weirs Beach when I was a kid/teenager. Met my first love here, met friends I am still in touch with after all these years. Got my first beesting on one of the rocks.
I love the picture!! And especially all the wonderful memories seeing this brings back to me. I will have to go back and visit it on my next trip to the island.
Welcome to Watery Wednesday too!

Carletta said...

I'm glad I finally got here today. Your first posting for WW is superb!
Beautiful rushing water and blue skies - what could be better than that. Lovely.
