A Shutterbug explores the surrounding areas of Cape Ann MA each week with her camera and her assistant. We do look for 'the magic'and sometimes it appears when we are seemingly not looking. What a gift! What treasures nature offers!

A delightful blend of the bright and the beautiful - you haiku really spoke to me today! Blessings, YAM xx
You neck of the woods is always pretty. I always wwanted to visit that part of the country.ReplyDelete
Worth a Thousand Words
Love the shot of your canine companion on the beach - they do so love the freeeedom of the shores, don't they! Thanks for sharing & visiting.ReplyDelete
That little dog of your always makes me smile. And I enjoyed the haiku, as always.ReplyDelete
That's a beautiful series of photos for the week, and I love your haiku. Enjoy the rest of your week!ReplyDelete
Very nice images.ReplyDelete
Just lovely! I love that red sky.ReplyDelete
Always something of interest around the Cape that your sharp eyes pick out for us.ReplyDelete
Great shadow on the last image....love the pink sky and the color reflection....and yes, I too would enjoy times on the beach to run free. Such a sweet sweet photo of your furbaby.ReplyDelete
Your little bundle of fluff is so cute! I've been looking for one too!ReplyDelete
My brother was a career Coast Guardsman. That photo brought his memory back to me. He died very young. He loved his work. I hope you are feeling well. Give your little mate a pat for me. I know she is loving this warmer weather.ReplyDelete
you are surrounded by so much beauty, and how lucky to be right by the beach and water. Love seeing Zoe enjoy it too. Lovely haiku. The pink skyline and reflection in the water is breathtaking! Love the sketch too. Have a great week and hope it'll be a warm one like here in PA.ReplyDelete
It's just the same here - yesterday was bright and sunny, and very warm in the sun. Today is damp and overcast. Roll on spring. At least you can take advantage of dogs being allowed on the beach before the warmer months come. Wishing you a happy week.ReplyDelete
Hello, your sky shots are stunning. Beautiful colors and moon capture. The views of the water, boat and ducks are lovely. Your sweet dog is always a favorite of mine. Have a happy day and week ahead!ReplyDelete
I love that small fence for good fences this week...and your sketch of course! Enjoy your week! Hugs!ReplyDelete
Really a perfect time for you on the beach and especially for Art Muse Dog -- decent weather and no leash! What could be better. It's too bad they couldn't set aside one small area as a dog friendly beach even during the summer season.ReplyDelete
Beautiful haiku, a good one for a Yoga meditation.
I've begun sketching in my journal. I cheat, draw first in pencil and then in ink. We have Canadian Coast Guard stationed in our hometown of Powell River, BC. We often see them out front from our condo practicing. - MargyReplyDelete
My day is a little brighter!ReplyDelete
I especially liked the soft lighting in the photo of Artmuse on the beach. The sky full of fire in your "fences" shot and the portrait of that beautiful pensive puppy are simply splendid!ReplyDelete
definitely NOT walkable ice!ReplyDelete
Ice... not my favorite item of Mother Nature...but nevertheless, you'r photo;s are stunning ... thankfully there's no ice... spring is almost starting and the sun is shining, with 6degrees celcius ... Nice weather to be outdoorsReplyDelete
Have a nice ABC-Day / - Week

Mum used to keep ducks, and at the creek at the back of our house, they did their dive under tricks. we used to see which duck will come up for air first.ReplyDelete
I laughed at your "not sure what season we are in". Neither am I we got snow last week. I love sunsets over water, gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Brrr, it looks cold up there. We are fairly warm, 70's, even in this awful rain, wind, and storms. Almost a week's worth.ReplyDelete
Art looks like she's tired from the beach walk and would like to hide before she has to go out in the cold again.
I don't know if dogs are allowed on our beaches or not. Likely they are, I don't remember any signs and there are signs where cars are not allowed.
Great shots. I like the ice. And the puppy always Warms The Heart. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful Thursday!ReplyDelete
Dear Carol & Artmuse, you have shared the most beautiful skies & waters & your sweet self on the beach! Precious moments & a joy to behold!ReplyDelete
What a stunning group of photos!
The houses on the shoreline look so pretty.
Is your little dog a Sydney Silky - she's so sweet.
Love the shadow shot image too!
Thank you for visiting my blog - wishing you a happy weekend in your neck of the woods too!
One day the Spring will arrive and the ice will vanish. I promise. Meanwhile that is one beautiful sunrise.ReplyDelete
If I took my dog off the leash I'm afraid she'd be gone. She's the most stubborn dog I've ever had. If I want to go right...she wants to go left. If she sees another dog she goes crazy. We've even tried obedience school. She's the sweetest dog inside, but outside... Your dog looks so sweet. I bet she never gives you any trouble.ReplyDelete
absolutely loved the fence shot and that beautiful colorful sky.ReplyDelete
Oh, my, I loved Thursday and Friday...and some others really appealed to me, too.ReplyDelete
Hi Carol, Great fence shot. Love it. Always enjoy seeing your sweet little dog. Have a nice weekend ahead!!ReplyDelete
My two favorites here today. The lovely fence scene and your little cutie on the beach.ReplyDelete
Lovely fence and stunning sky shots. Love your cute dog pose too!ReplyDelete
Oh how I love traveling through your week of images... the colors of that sunset that frame that fence, the patches of ice, the warmth of the sun on the beach... it is all so beautiful Carol. I so appreciate the message of your haiku... and I need to remember to trust that my wings will unfold... you and that sweet muse have a great weekend! XOReplyDelete
Hello!:) Lovely shared post,with a breathtaking fence shot, and beautiful doggie images. Have a great weekend,...spring is almost here!:))ReplyDelete
The "Good Fences" shot is more than awesome. It is perfect fire in the sky and fire in the water. Awesome! As is your haiku, which is needed to quiet the mind after the imagination that photo brings. That is probably what Ms. A.M. Dog is thinking, too. :)ReplyDelete
A quiet mind allows for so many possibilities.ReplyDelete
Your photos look relaxing. My favorite is the Thursday one - so beautiful.ReplyDelete
Thank you for visiting my blog.
May you always have a quiet, listening mind...ReplyDelete
Wonderful haiku!!! I will listen! Thank you and wishing you a wonderful weekend!ReplyDelete
Beautiful shadow play! Lovely haiku. :)ReplyDelete
Love your dog :-)) Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
My mind thinks the Coast Guard ship goes Toot! Toot! but that doesn't seem like the right sound. I like your sketch. It looks like a neat adventure going on.ReplyDelete
The View from the Top of the Ladder
Wonderful post with lots of great images. I love that moon shot!ReplyDelete
Good morning, I love your sweet furbaby! Cute photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful Thursday.ReplyDelete
Your Shadow Shot is gorgeous, but your Warm My Heart Wednesday stole my heart...but you already knew that. Would you tell me what kind of a dog that sweetheart is? Jack is not doing well, and once he is gone I want a baby just like yours. Yep, my heart has been stolen. Hope you have a nice weekend. Love you.ReplyDelete
A delightful array of pages for the week! I loved them all, especially your shadow shot and the Coast Guard Ship. (My nephew is a Coastie!ReplyDelete
It's starting to look like spring! Love that bright sunset. I really do enjoy all the seascapes you share. It's so different from my world. Hope you have a great week.ReplyDelete
oh wow Thursday's skies - awesome!ReplyDelete
What amazing shots !ReplyDelete
Thank you for your lovely comment on ~ My little old world ~ I appreciate so much, following you with joy ❥ !
Enjoy your weekend
oh!!! i so luv Wednesday's shot of artmuse dogReplyDelete
Gorgeous skies! I always love seeing your cute companion. Have a great week ahead, Carol!ReplyDelete
Such beauty in the rest of the post (that beauty which was not up yet when I commented before). Even the pictures I already saw are of course worth a second look. I always feel calmer and happier after a visit to your domain!ReplyDelete
Lovely series of photos.... the weather really does keep us guessing.ReplyDelete
Your little one looks happy on the beach.....always good fun and easy digging!
Enjoy your week,
Beautiful scene for SS! Lovely photos too Carol.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos! Of course your little assistant loves to run free at the beach (just as mine) :)ReplyDelete
Lots of fun; so much sensitivity, orange or blue skies, between seasons :)... under the moon...ReplyDelete
Wonderful lyrics for soul and for sure, " love to know what she is thinking"... probably it is about the next treat.... :)
Best regards in the new week!
Fab sketch,love the little dog too ;)ReplyDelete
Such beautiful photos and what a sweet sketch, I love the pup! :)ReplyDelete
That shadow looks like Paul Bunyan! Your photos make me want to go on vacation.ReplyDelete
Brrr to the ice caps! And, OMG-that shadow on the beach looks like a monster!ReplyDelete
When one has to spell the word "beach"...Our two dog children love being off the leash on Jekyll! In the heat of summer, Mulligan goes fishing in the surf. He's never caught anything, though. Lizzie has to greet every walker she sees. She thinks everyone just loves dogs!! Such a sweet photo you took!!ReplyDelete
Lovely photos, as always! Nice sketch too. So sorry you are having trouble with your eyes at the moment. I hope it's only temporary. Enjoy your week. :)ReplyDelete
Lovely little sketch, Carol. Darling bridge. Terribly sorry to hear you've been struggling with your vision. I hope all gets better soon. Sending hugs. :)ReplyDelete
great photos :D hope your eyes are not bugging you at the momentReplyDelete
I think your little cutie must warm the heart of everyone she encounters on that gorgeous beach!ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking to week 17.
I wanted to ask what's going on with your eyes? That must be really frightening.ReplyDelete
Hugs and prayers.
