Today I have an all digital double Moon theme going on, firstly For 'Nature's Wonders' at AJJ.
I love to sit and watch the sea and the waves rolling in as I find it is very calming - although never by moonlight but that might be nice too.
I blended a couple of my photos to get the exaggerated size moon over our sea shore. And digitally cut out the young gull. Other elements from Beaches kit by 'Kreative Designs by Karen'. Font Pie Contest BTN Cameo Rev.
Not sure who the verse is by, but this is what it says.....
The tide recedes, but leaves behind
Bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle warmth
Still lingers on the land.
The music stops, yet echoes on
In sweet soulful refrains.
For every joy that passes,
Something beautiful remains.
Living near the sea, I probably should have a better understanding of tides and the moon and how it all works but I don't.
I know there are two tides a day and at certain times of the year there can be some very high tides which can cause flooding and much damage.
The effect of the moon on the tides is a very powerful one and one good use for all this tidal energy is for generating electricity.
However, I am once again left with lots of questions, wondering if tides are useful for other things and wondering what effect the tides have on fish, sea birds and everything else in the water.
I did find a good answer to why we have tides explained by Professor Brian Cox but I can't begin to put it into words but I kind of grasped it I think.
These photos don't really show it clearly nor the power in the waves, but this was a winter high tide and the water on the lower promenade had not yet peaked.

and next, something for Moo Mania & more or perhaps that should be MOON Mania as moon is the theme at present. My piece will make more sense if you know that I've always loved the quote that Susi used on her team sample 'Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star'.

That's my lot for now... it's Friday again

I hope you have a great weekend
and thanks so much for stopping by today
