Selkie Seas

Forever dreaming of the sea, it sings to me like a sirens song calling to Persephone. Hearken to the sound of music upon the wind, the sweet luring voices that will someday enchant a seafarers heart.
Twelve thousand feet beneath the water exists an unknown realm, where mythical beings dwell as if cast under a spell by a powerful warlock.
A tale that shall be told when all grows silent and the world is ready to listen.

Ocean ~

Tales of selkies and haunted coves, clambering over fallen rocks in search of seals slumbering in their caves, tempestuous waves, foaming water colliding against rock pools, lifeless fish lost to the pebbled shore, beachcombing for shells, feathers, sea life, a peregrine falcon hovering in the sky, the gloaming, soft ripples and hazy mists, wispy clouds, iridescence, the last of the sunlight lapping the shore.

Those photos are GORGEOUS. Did you take them? And where is that?


The Snow Child said...

I do believe selkies are real. Have you seen Ondine? xxxx

Tales from the Dryad Forest said...

Mich ~ Aw thank you so much. Yes I did take them :)
The pictures are from a few different places in Cornwall, England. Botallack, Bluehills, Godrevy and Chapel Porth {incase you wanted to know the names ♥}

The Snow Child ~ I very much hope that they are real. Yes! I adore that film, everything about it is beautiful. Have you seen The Secret of Roan Inish? {another film about selkies}
