Sunday Scenery

Just enough time for a quick post today sandwiched in between yesterday's work shift, a nice evening out with Ralph and Patti - Blogging Royalty who came in from The Uplands for chowdah and conversation - and today's 16-hour dispatch bonanza.

For Lee's Sunday Scenery meme I chose this photo that I took a couple of Saturdays ago down by the Long Island Sound in New London. I was using a friend's borrowed telephoto lens to see how I liked it and even though I did, finances are such right now that buying one of my own is not really an option. I'm thinking that when I fly west next month, I may just rent a lens from one of the many places online that have them available. It's something I'm kicking around at any rate.

In the meantime, everyone have a great Sunday! It's going to be a chilly, drizzly, sorry-excuse-for-Spring day here in Connecticut but at least I'll be nice and dry watching chick flicks in between 911 calls and dreaming of warmer days to come. Soon, I hope!


  1. Nice...after Tuesday I'm gonna be closer to the beach...expect lots of pics

  2. Love that shot, it's got me hankering after the sea but it's too cold here to go to the seaside. It is, however, bright and sunny so that makes a change. :)

  3. This land is your land, this land is my land
    From California, to the New York Island
    From the redwood forest, to the gulf stream waters
    This land was made for you and me

    You got me started sing this morning Linda

  7. I love this photo! Wasn't it nice of that lone seagull to pose for you?

    I just went over to 'meet' Patti. I hope she gets to feeling better. I've seen Ralph around a time or two, perhaps the Looking at the Sky meme?

    Enjoy your chick flicks! It's Bingo with the Biddies for me. :]

  8. That is SO clear!

    800th post up now!

  9. This shot reminds me of the beach I stopped at on the way to CT in 2007. My camera was acting up (argh) ...I think it was Pebble Beach(?),that doesn't sound right. Anyway,there was a 9/11 memorial there because you could see the place where the Twin Towers stood from that spot. It was cold and rocky and windy not like any beach I'd been to before. But still beautiful.

    This is a beautiful shot, Linda.
    Now I'm going to go nuts trying to remember the name of that beach.

  10. I am sitting here with my dad in the hosapital what a beautiful picture to look at on my blackberry phone I want to be there now so does my dad. Thanks Linda!!!!!!

  11. Beautiful photo, Linda. I'm not that far from New London. I should get myself down to the coast to get some shots You make it look beautiful.

    I didn't know you could rent lenses.

  12. I've just discovered something: When I know you're going to be posting something with a photo involved, I kind of hold my breath knowing that you will take my breath away!

  13. "What are YOU looking at?"
    says mr bird.

  14. OH MY WORD!! Who would of thought the Long Island Sound near New London could be so blue!! Very nice pic Linda...

  15. That is a really fine photo! Just look at the detail on the rocks!
