I love being at sea, the vast waters surrounding me. It’s been a while, so when I decided to go over to Normandy it felt amazing. There’s nothing like the quality of light at sea.
I was going over for a couple of days to visit Juno Beach and the other D-Day Invasion beaches, so I decided to take the earliest morning ferry from Portsmouth so that I could watch the shores of Normandy the way the Canadians and other Allied Forces did on the Morning of June 6, 1944. The following are the best of the next few hours’ photos.
Toward the horizon it goes, following the invisible bread crumbs that only its navigator and captain can see.
Lost in the mists of the still foggy morning, the great cliffs slowly disappear.
The next few days changed my view of the wars and I came away feeling as if I had a better understanding of what it must have been like to live there during those wars. However, that was yet to come. On this morning I had renewed my love of being at sea, had felt once more the pull and mystery of it.
I'm a Canadian who loves our planet and the people living on it. I also love to travel and take pictures. I'd like to think I've improved a little, but am pretty sure there's room to be better.
