I can’t recall if I’ve ever met someone that didn’t like spending a day at the beach. The sun, the sand, the surf, and the over-all tranquility. Awesome.
When I go to the beach to take pictures, like when I hike, I tend to focus more on nature and the wildlife traipsing about instead of any people that may be around me. Let’s face it, the people at the beach are pretty much always doing the same things. Kids are running around screaming, drawing/playing in the sand, building sandcastles, and swimming while their parents look on from beach chairs or blankets. All those activities can make for some nice photographs, but they tend to get old really quick. At least for me. I like to focus more on the things most people simply pass by, like patterns left in the sand by the receding tide, rocks that are in natural but unusual formations, and feathers left behind by sea gulls.
Recently, the weather cooperated long enough for me to take a trip to the beach (I love living less than five miles from the ocean!). I managed to bring home some, in my opinion, decent photographs. I’d like to share just a few of those with you folks. Hey, I did promise you last week that I would include two or three images this week!
Until next time…
