Crashing ocean waves produce a symphony of feel good sounds that calm, relax, refresh, revitalize and stir the soul. Our connectivity to the sea comes to no surprise -- water is a life giving force, after all.

The magnetic power of the sea also draws us into the coast in almost an innate, spiritual way designated for a lifetime. Think of the first time you saw the ocean, a lake, a river... heck, even a swimming pool. That special feeling never went away, did it? Heading to the coast is almost like attending Mother's Nature's mass for a sermon on the sacred inspiration of the sea.

For me, ocean waves comprise a big part of the sea's appeal -- just as much as the sand and sun. The circular motion of the water remains the same 24/7 but its personality differs with every look. Kind of life snowflakes -- every drop is different.

York, Maine remains a personal favorite place to watch the ocean waves. From sunrise to sunset to the darkness of the sky, it never gets old! 

Here are some scenes that we share with you of those glorious ocean waves York, Maine-style...

First thing in the morning can bring some spectacular waves juxtaposed with a dramatic sky.

The power of the sea looks so imposing but, simultaneously, reassuring that the crashing of waves will be always be with us.

The motion of the ocean pounds on the rocks.

And those waves always find a way up, over and around the rocks.

The sight of waves is especially pleasing in the presence of Nubble Lighthouse, shiny rocks and a creamy orange sky!

Daylight at the sea brings a completely different personality than sunrise but just as impressive-- and there's no need to wake up early if that's not your cup of tea.

Expansive views of the ocean juxtaposed with the mainland -- and some seaweed on the rocks -- provide a pleasing setting to watch the waves.

Let's not forget, either, about the ocean waves at night. When the high tide arrives, there's sometimes no stopping its force.

It looks like the ocean version of fireworks exploding into the sky at night.
