Who knows what secrets the sea holds deep under the waves. Enigmatic blue and deep unfathomable darkness is all we see on the surface. She sends us messages in white rolling waves if only we could understand their meaning….
From The Sea Moods Collection
This is an image from my new series called Sea Moods, minimalist images that reflect the beauty of the deep blue Atlantic Ocean.
Made on tiny beach on the far side of the Isle of Lewis on a day when the sky was heavy with rain and the waves were rolling softly in. This beach has no name (as far as I can tell), it lies to the north of Uig near a tiny place called Valtos (Bhaltos in the Gaelic language) on the north west coast of Lewis. A place surrounded by rocky cliffs but with silver sands and deep blue water. From here you look out onto the North Atlantic Ocean to Iceland, Greenland and endless seas. The remoteness and the romance of this place puts you under a spell.
The name Sea Moods was inspired by the Hebridean songs of Celtic poet and songwriter Kenneth Macleod (1871 - 1955). Here are a few lines that seem apt...
Deep the longing that has seized me,
Song nor fiddle lifts it off,
In my ear the ocean sounding
Sets me roving from the glen,
And sea voices ever call me:
Come, O love, to thy home land.
