Frames from Nantucket

by Landis Carey on September 19, 2011

During the past few weeks I’ve been dealing with an unusual amount of very un-fun stuff, and by unusual I mean above and beyond the normal day-to-day we all experience. But don’t worry…nothing is seriously wrong, and it’s nothing that can’t be fixed with time and diligence. It’s just all the energy I’ve been putting into this one particular effort has left me a little creatively dry. So over the weekend, when I came across these images from our last Nantucket trip, I nearly sprung out of my seat.

The day really was this beautiful: the light and cloud formation, the intensity of the seaweed green. It was heaven, absolute heaven. The morning had been cool—too cool for swimming—so we went on a four-wheel drive adventure that lead us to one of the most remote points of the island. We walked and walked and listened to the sheer silence.

The time we spent there that morning was truly peaceful, something I hope we all get to experience every once in a while. So, here are a few frames that hopefully take you away on this Monday to a place that’s carefree and serene, a place where you can feel the sand between your toes and the warmth of the sun on your face as you walk along, even if for just a moment for two.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Tell me, where do you find your bit of serenity?

Thanks, SOS! Isn’t the brilliance of the seaweed amazing? I knew I had to photograph it once we happened upon it.

These are beautiful photos!

I find my peaceful moments in my backyard, as we look out onto a reserve, and at our local beach in Sydney, Australia.

Am enjoying your blog, not exactly sure how I found it.
