Looking across the sheltered cove of North Landing in East Yorkshire towards the tall cliffs of the RSPB's Bempton nature reserve. A beautiful summer days with calm seas, very different in winter when there is a storm raging in the North Sea.
Photograph edited to give a stylised HDR effect.

Day 1 - Together walking through the sand dunes

Sell Art Online

Anticipation is half the pleasure. When you are planning a day at the beach, you can hear already the waves rolling in, the smell of the fresh ocean breeze is in the air, you feel the sand between your toes.
A mother and her little daughter are walking through the sand dunes towards the beach, going to have a day full of fun at the ocean.

I decided to print out some of my photos from a vacation at the Baltic sea in Germany some years ago as inspiration and do some little beach and ocean themed paintings for this challenge.

Day 1

Ocean Ripple Pane 1 The Sea Shell

Here we see one of our multicolored fish checking out a new found Sea Shell.

Is there a resident at home or is this shell empty. If he knocks maybe a friendly crab will come out and they can have a mid-morning chat.

But wait, is there such a thing as a friendly crab? Maybe it would be better to just move on and forget about knocking? What do you think he should do?

Sunday morning rest in Gabarus, Nova Scotia is a digital painting version of a photograph I took while visiting Cape Breton, a beautiful place to see and explore, like every other places of the Atlantic Canada. I like to photograph fishing boats and fishing tools, and I was happy to find this picturesque fishermen's village of the Canadian Maritimes.

We are supposed to get some nasty weather over the next two days - remnants of Hurricane/Tropical Storm "Elsa" will pass right over us tonight. So I went out this morning to shoot a couple of brand new "water" images to last me a couple of days. Here is this morning's Golden Sunrise at Bethany Beach (Delaware, USA) - with a bit of creative editing to bring out the gold instead of the red/yellow/orange one might expect. It also brings out the sunbeams, or Crepuscular Rays, of sunshine.

Day One: 7/8/21
Wall Art

"Pelican on the River Watercolor" by Patti Deters. A lone pelican floats along on the wavy river as a larger flock of birds takes flight in the background. This is a Great White Pelican (Pelecanus onocrotalus) that I photographed in the wild, then created this digital watercolor background for artistic effect. The bright sun and shoreline grasses are common elements of the landscape where pelicans can be found. Although these large white water birds appear awkward when on land, they are graceful and beautiful when in flight and can fly for an entire day and night going up to 300 miles without rest. If you like this digital art wildlife nature artwork, please share or see my main image gallery (birds, waterscapes, outdoor, more) at patti-deters.pixels.com.

Ruby Beach Reflections

Ruby Beach Olympic National Park Watercolor Painting Print by Carlin Blahnik

This watercolor painting captures the dramatic beauty of Ruby Beach, Olympic National Park, Washington.

Possibly the most captivating beach in the Pacific Northwest, Ruby beach has amazing sea stacks, some topped with trees! Reflections of these rock formations in the shallow waters add to the gorgeous scenery.

My vacation here was a spur of the moment to escape the heat of August in Austin TX. This beach was just one of many beautiful destinations in Olympic National Park!

#7 - July 14, 2021 - YaY, I actually completed the challenge...

Lunch in a Puddle. Combining two of my passions, the Wild Horses of Assateague Island, which many call Assateague Ponies, and food. I love to eat - but so do these horses. They mostly graze on tough old salt marsh grasses, however a recent cycle or rainy and sunny weather gave rise to lush greenery arising near puddles of rainfall. Think a nice fresh salad for lunch...

Here we have our multicolored fish just found herself something that looks like a horse.

Well, I am certainly not a horse said Jimmy the seahorse, I am a fish like you, only smaller, and I don’t give rides so don’t even ask.

At that you could hear the three little fish up above give a little giggle.

"Muted Autumn Shoreline Landscape" by Patti Deters. This view of the winter shoreline at Boy Lake, Minnesota was photographed in the early evening. There's just a light dusting of snow on the rocks and boulders along the shore. The sky is a muted pink sepia orange color from a forest fire haze a few counties away. The rusty fall colors of the rice and shore grasses and reeds complement the color of the cloudless sky. If you like this landscape scene, I invite you to see my main image gallery (nature, outdoors, more) at patti-deters.pixels.com.

Day 7
Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and they snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way Joni Mitchell

Final Day 7

Bubbly Pool Jost Van Dyke

Bubbly Pool Jost Van Dyke Watercolor Painting Print by Carlin Blahnik

This watercolor painting captures a magical natural pool on Jost Van Dyke island in the Caribbean British Virgin Islands. A fun destination for tourists & locals to play in the bubbly froth, as depicted with the three people in this scene.

The shallow Bubbly Pool is protected from the ocean by granite boulders & can be as calm as a pond, depending on tides & wind direction.

When conditions are right, a natural Jacuzzi is formed as waves roll through breaks in the rock formations. The frothy white water fills the small pool with effervescent seawater & turns it into a water playground!

A visit here often includes one to nearby Foxy’s Taboo Restaurant.
