Jared Blash took this photo on the rocky shores of the Atlantic Ocean near Rye, New Hampshire. He had this to say about the shot:
I decided to go out shooting at a spot I visit often in Rye, NH last night since the forecast was looking bleak for the upcoming weekend. It was a beautiful night and stayed clear up until around 2 a.m. I ended up getting few shots I’m really happy with.
EarthSky’s Deborah Byrd commented:
It’s fascinating to me how humans will pile up rocks. We swim at a nearby creek where, every summer, people make rock piles that grow larger all summer, coming up out of the water. With the spring rains each year, they wash away … and then people begin in early summer to re-build them again. There’s something in us humans that needs to pile up rocks!
Thank you, Jared, for the beautiful photo.
