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.
