Ocean Road With Clouds

(Click to enlarge)

This is a view of the ocean road three and a half miles to the east and just south of where I live.

Nice photo. You are lucky to live so close to the ocean (unless there is a hurricane!).

My niece also has CFIDS, had been quite ill for four years or so. She had to quit working (she was a gitarist/singer in a band). They had a hard time diagnosing her--went from lupus and leukemia through other things. She lost a LOT of weight, sleeps a lot, has joint troubles and thyroid problems. If you were diagnosed in 1990, it has persisted for a long time. Heidi is in her early forties. She seems to be getting a bit better, has put on a little weight (not much) and she eats well. Doesn't spend quite as much time in bed. There seems to be a lot of depression, but I think that's a little better. How long does this last? It's not fun, huh!

A sight to behold and to give strenght to tired sinews.

Pepe..nobody knows how long it lasts and while it does get depression,it's not a form of depression, as so many used to think. My grandmother had it, diagnosed by my cousin and mother in retrospect when I got it. She got well in less than ten years. Most of my online friends with it got it young and have had it a long time but they've improved. I'm better than when it first hit, but am still housebound and stay dizzy to varying degrees. I've met people at my doctor's office who are back to normal lives. Bottom line is that it's a toss of the dice.

And no, when hurricanes come, no fun.

Plus Ultra...glad you enjoyed that shot. I'm enamoured both with clouds and the sea.

Travel along the coast in South Florida alot over the years. First time I've seen it in black and white. Good shot!!

This is an incredible shot! It belongs on the cover of a book!

Hi Pat
this was taken in colour. As you know, black and white film is harder and harder to develop from a regular camera and this was from my digital. I used the 'split channel' effect in photoshop to bring it to the graytones.

Michael
Your check is in the mail :-) (Thank you)

Don't the clouds look different when you take away the blue? Nice picture to paint.

this looks great in b&w no matter how it was initially taken.

Pris said...

Hi Polona
I liked it better in b&w, myself. More dramatic.

Those clouds look extremly low in the sky...

Maybe it's just the angle.

A very brooding feel to this pic Pris. I like the black and white.

Pris said...

It's partly the angle and also the distance. They were low that day.
