Very nice, Ryan. Looks so peaceful!
Thanks Maggie! Peaceful, yes... Eerie is more like it! Visibility was so low, the waves just kept coming out of nowhere, then rushing back out and disappearing. I kept thinking, if there were a giant tidal wave rushing toward the beach, there's no way I could see it until it was about to break on top of me.
I think in this one you did especially well in catching the atmosphere ... eerie as it may have been!
Thank you Marilyn! I did feel especially lucky to get to the beach just as the fog came in. It was like a whole different world. And really, what's the point of just more photos of a perfect beach?
Incidentally, Ryan, have you noticed that on Panoramio there are a great many respectable but boring "photos of a perfect beach"? These do not fit into that category!
I've taken some boring one myself, though not many because I'm not a "beach person." And I hope that the beach shots I've posted are not boring. I think part of why people do it is that we have such pleasant associations with such pleasant places that our emotions override our aesthetic judgments! (That's all the analysis for today!)
Thanks once again, Marilyn! And I think you're absolutely right. Even the best photographer can go to a really beautiful location and start snapping off photos "just because they're pretty". I've done that myself quite often :), but I try not to post anything that's not worthwhile on some level.
