Horizontal Landscapes

New England is not a place where the horizon is always in view.

Nor an unbroken sky.

Yesterday we went looking for sky, and for horizon.

We drove down miles of dirt road, stopped, got out, leashed the dog,

and then we walked down a path.

Christine walks down a path.

Our distination: the shore of Tisbury Great Pond.

We get to the shore….

What a beautiful day…

Tisbury Great Pond
The water, the land, the cloud deck….are all horizontals
A line of exposed rocks
Lines of waterfowl
On the distant beach, a half-horizontal human scans the ocean.

It’s flat-out nice down here.
