Pebbles on the beach

For me, fall brings with it not only a new crispness in the air, but a rush and whirl of busy-ness. I don't enjoy the heat we get here in August and early September, but we always have the beach nearby for a bit of respite from climbing thermometers. So as summer exits, those beach visits send echoes of the summers I love: the colors, sights and sounds of sand, pebbles and sea.
"I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may - light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful."  - John Constable
(English landscape painter b. June 11th, 1776)
