Island Bound

I’m getting ready to head off for a long weekend at the beach again.  It feels like one last summer adventure before Autumn gets her grips into  us.  I’m hoping for clear skies so that I can work more on my project capturing still things such as rocks in moving water like the image above.  This image was taken at the beach earlier in the summer during a longer stay that I had.  I got up early many mornings, taking full advantage of the fact that since I was only moments away from the beach I could get precious extra minutes in bed.  I generally like to arrive well before sunrise and generally shoot until sunrise.  I like the amount and quality of the pre-dawn light which allows me to easily blur the water as I did here.  This morning I once again learned the lesson that you need to be very careful when shooting around water – a rogue wave soaked me to the skin, fortunately I got my camera safely out of the water, and though I was a little shaken up I continued on shooting to get the image above.

  1. This is so lovely, Andy! Be careful on those rocks, though. I’m going to the NC beach for a week on Saturday, and sadly there’s nary a rock in sight, just a lonely pier. I’m jealous of your shots like this one. Print it BIG!

    • Thanks Cindy. Almost the first thing that I do when we are going anywhere close to the ocean now is spend a few minutes with the satellite view on google maps to see whether there is any interesting features on the beaches nearby. I’m sure I drive everyone nuts. I hope all is well – have fun at the beach!

  2. The above photograph looks asthough you were still asleepand dreaming, Andy. For the image is much like those in my dreams; a cotton candy world full of possibility. Have a great weekend!
