Views 78 Unique 45 Award Shortlist   


By LynneJoyce  
Another set that shows my love of beaches, especially sandy beaches, the incredible variety of subtle colours and wonderful textures that you can find there and the wonderful stories that the sand records for us. The opener, for instance, tells of people and a dog walking the beach as the tide went out, V's 2, 4 and 8 evidence more human and canine traffic, V9 records a solitary dog walker at low tide while small part of V11 shows the progress of a seabird across the sand in the stormy weather. Several shots were taken into the light (contre jour for those of you who like the posh term) a tricky technique that gives a lovely, sparkly texture to damp sand. Others show the variety of sculptural effects created by streams and changing tides plus the jewel-like effects of the water itself.

The shots were taken on two separate, in-transit visits to the same beach with very different light and weather conditions. I am so pleased at finding this location that I have booked a few days away there in a pet friendly B&B so there will be more shots to come including a rampaging pup. Shutter speed priority will be needed for those shots.

As ever the exif applies only to the first shot.

Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these shots.

A varied selection. The sparkles work well with the ripples and textures but the 'dark sky' images look the best for me, Lynne.

A story in every one and while the frost is upon us now we can enjoy memories of sunny strolls on beaches. Love V5 and V12 especially.

A fine collection Lynne, makes me want to be at the seaside and on the beach, especially on a sunny day like today! Love the way patterns appear in the sand, and go for V10 & V12 as my faves here Smile

All of these are very special!

Re: Make America Great again--- a slogan from mr.trumps campaign pledges----The USA was already great and is far less great due to his meddling, etc. The sign on my time line on you know where is a bit of back stabbing and a voice of praise for Americans who voted yesterday. . The elections turned out quite well--- PM me if you want more discussion.
