I love the sea. I’ve probably taken more photos of the sea than of anything else! I love these pictures because they capture foamy and furious waves near the shore. There I am mesmerized by the view…
They were taken in the seaside town of Santander in the north of Spain by the Cantabrian Sea which is a gulf off the northeast Atlantic Ocean. The original Cantabri were a pre-Roman Celtic people who lived in the Peninsula known as Hispania from the 4th to late 1st centuries BC. Regarded as savage and untamable mountaineers, the Cantabri warriors defied the Roman legions although they were finally Romanized.
Even today they are known for their independent spirit and love of freedom, like the waters which mercilessly beat against their shores… My ancestors were born there, and some of my close family still live there, so I can vouch for their courageous and independent nature… perhaps I have even inherited some of these characteristics myself!

By the way, my WordPress profile picture was taken there, too!

  3. My pleasure Cee! Thanks for organising the challenge! I live inland (most of the time) but I try and get to the beach as often as I can, which is not often enough!
