stairway to heaven




























this photo was taken recently while walking on the beach in montauk. there are some very expensive ocean front homes at the top of this staircase. I was standing at the waters edge as I shot this photo. personally I would settle for a home within walking distance to the sea.

Great title, Lily! I'd love the ocean view, as long as my home didn't suffer the same fate as this staircase. Have a gorgeous weekend!

Kitty said...

Love your title, Lily! But I would like to see a little sturdier staircase! Gorgeous summer skies! I'm not within walking distance of our beach, but it's only a five minute drive and I love it! Fun post for the day! Hope you have a terrific weekend! Enjoy!

A scary stairway!

That's a lot of beach erosion. I'd love to have a home up there, too, right there on heaven's gate.

Nice capture of textures and contrasts....lovely.

Oh yes, I've seen those homes! Beach erosion from storms wreck havoc out there.
I'd like mu house to be on a solid rock cliff overlooking the ocean... it's all a dream. of course.

Stairway to Heaven turned into a Highway to Hell, didn't it?

Paula said...

Looks like the aftermath of one of our California earthquakes!
Love the earth and sky colors though.

Beautiful photo and capturing of the delicate nature of that beach eroding cliff.

Sorry I've been absent a bit; my friend Marianne, whom you met, is here, and we've been out and about!

These beach shots with the fence and stairs are great and remind me of 'Something's Gotta Give', a film I love.

I guess going back up with beach chairs and bags is a lot more work! Great find!
