Incoming Tide

This is one of those gentle coastal pictures where I like to think that less is more. I love the simplicity of it.

It wasn’t taken today; indeed the sea has been fierce today, and also a rather unbecoming shade of brown. I guess it wasn’t a day for pretty, tranquil sea, with the turmoil going on around us, culminating with the announcement of another National lockdown from midnight.

The tide was definitely coming in when I took the picture. One second the jetty was clear; the next I had to run back to shore to stop my feet from getting soaked. So maybe it is an apt image for today in spite of its serenity. It reminds us that the tide may come in but it will always go out again, without fail. And so too will this time of such sadness, loneliness and self-sacrifice eventually, pass. Until then we just have to stay at home and keep our feet dry.
