Beautiful pictures.

that rock formation looks from here like a face (wearing a hat), looking out to sea.

Beautiful coastline. Reminds me of the white cliffs of Dover.

Miner's Castle, I believe. How I wish I could have gotten up there this year.

Fantastic captures of an incredibly beautiful place! Truly breathtaking! I particularly love the first two shots and like Bobbie, I see a head with a hat on! Love it!

Have a great week!

It looked lovely indeed. I have seen it a couple of times, but only covered with ice.

Love your pictures of the rugged coastline. Beautiful.

This coast reminds me of the White Cliffs of Dover! They are beautiful. I also like the slide of the hatching eggs and little birds. Wonderful site!

Beautiful! Reminds me a bit of the flower pot islands near Tobermory in Lake Huron/Georgian Bay.

Breathtaking photos! You're right--no words are needed here.

I live on the Minnesota side of Lake Superior and recognize the same rocky bluffs there too. Absolutely beautiful photos for today!

Yes, Jim, that's Miner's Castle.
And the color of the water crashing against the cliffs is exactly as it appears in all the glossy brochures.
Who needs to go to Cancun when we have sights like these a day's drive from home!?

We had thought about going to that very same seashore last summer but opted out. Your photos make me want to vacation there next summer. Looks wonderful.

These are very pretty photographs of a pretty shoreline.
I too find beauty in my own backyard.

Perfectly beautiful! I love the photo that captures the depth of the water and the rocks.

Jay said...

P for Picture!! Now why didn't I think of that? LOL!

Beautiful pictures, too. I love how you can see the sloping sea bed at the shore line there.

Now these photographs take my breath away! What a gorgeous coastline.
