sunset sand


Sand along the Loire cast some nice warm shadows during a recent sunset in Amboise.

    1. Well now that I found it on the internet, I do. Including, and fitting for today, "Le soleil mon grand copain".

  3. Le poids des mots et le chic des photos! Pour parodier le célèbre slogan de la revue Paris Match: "le poids des mots, le choc des photos"...

    1. Thanks. I think the sand evokes memories for everyone. I think of visiting my grandparents when I was a child. The lived two blocks from a beach in Florida.

    1. At least for the moment. A few weeks ago this was under water, and I expect it will be again.

  9. I think the wonderful thing about footsteps in the sand is their ever changing pattern. One minute there, a wave washes over, they're gone, nice !

    1. In this case, it's the rising river level that washes over. This section had been underwater for months but is now drying out in the warmer, and dryer, weather.

    1. Yeah, this little path leads one right down to the water's edge.
