Beautiful, Patricia.  I went back twice to re-view #2.  Just lovely.

Yes they are, Patricia.
I'm guessing: Maine?

The second and third one for me.  Where were these taken?

My preference goes to number 2. Like the rusty colours in the rock in the foreground.

Conanicut Island, (Jamestown, Rhode Island) with lighthouses in the north and south. This is the Beavertail Lighthouse. I had been working my way around the great upward thrusts late afternoons and evenings at the low tides curious about what the water concealed. Had been parking well north of the light but at night would see its telltale beam in the mist and finally drove out that way to actually see it.
 You become so consumed working your way down rock (steep) walls you forgot where you are...The entire point is a good place to hear the sea close to home...

Curiously, I am attracted to #1 more than the others. The photo is ambiguous - it could be a close-up or an aerial photograph. It has a twilight feel to it.

Your reaction is welcome and comes from a good place. The "other", past and beyond surfaces, requires being open to awareness, and that awareness flows from the experiences that are your makeup. We hear "seeing", we feel "seeing" always just beyond the walls of surface that immediately take hold. It is not by accident that perception involves language which is often not immediately accessible...but the very act of being open to welcome the unexpected is a large part of allowing the image to begin studying the viewer meeting us more than halfway to a different place from that protective surface. Dreams showing themselves in an "other" truth...receiving the concealed.
