Secrets revealed…


5:50:15 a.m.

While I appreciate the drama that high tide and lively surf can offer compositionally, I also enjoy exploring the secrets that are revealed at low tide. All sorts of normally submerged goodies become exposed, and quite often the palette of color on display is striking. On this particular morning, the soft, even light of what was actually an uninspiring sunrise created a kaleidoscope of earthy colors that I really liked. As the incoming tide softly washed around my feet, I couldn’t help but smile as the ocean once again temporarily reclaimed possession of such a beautiful landscape.

      Thanks Rick. A faster exposure time freezes the water (or clouds), and depending on the scene, that might be a better choice. In this photograph, I wanted the small waves to wash in and around the colorful rocks, adding a contrasting feel to that part of the scene. And yes… there’s nothing quite like the smell of low tide 🙂

      Thanks Karen. On this morning I slowly made my way closer and closer to the water’s edge. I do like those colours 🙂

I'd love to hear from you...
