It was a hot summer night and the beach was burning, there was fog crawling over the sand...

(Boy)"On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?"
(Boy) "I bet you say that to all the boys."
~~partial lyrics to 'Bat out of Hell' by Meatloaf.~~
I love their old songs.
This image was not taken in the summer, it was taken this week, in the good 'ol January winter. But when I saw the scene, it reminded me of the song. The ice skaters had gone home, and there was light snow blowing across both the water and shore from the wind. The snow looked like fog, crawling over the 'sand' and just like that, I was singing to the Meatloaf song in my head.
Life is good.


  1. Beautiful!! And the song fits perfectly :).

  2. Wonderful capture, Shawna. The grasses in the forground, the trees in the back and the ice in the middle tell a quiet story. Isn't it funny how little things bring a song to your mind? I took a detour by way of Youtube to listen to some Meatloaf.

  3. I love the mood..didn't exactly bring MeatLoaf to mind though. lol But Karen's right, sometimes images do bring songs to mind. Cool.

  4. Beautiful! You have a real talent with landscapes!

  5. Beautiful photo and interesting song lyrics.

  6. Great photo -- Looks like a painting!

  7. Love this shot! You are quite gifted!
