Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

The complex sea, this week’s photo challenge, cannot be captured in one image or a dozen, nor 12,000 words if a picture is worth a thousand words. Here, I present nine images, all but one from along the Mediterranean coast of Israel. The first photo is from Croatia, along the Dalmatian coastline. You can view technical details of the photos by rolling your mouse cursor over the image (does not work on mobile devices).

This is the sea I: Romantic sea

Far below the fortress walls, the Dalmation sea wears away rocks…

leans out into light,
the dark Dalmatian sea
wears away rocks…

While a strong young man pulls a net taught along the Mediterranean in order to catch what the sea dreams.

    And he in fact bought me lunch simply because I discovered it for him…
