stormy Saturday

This past weekend was a mixed bag weather-wise, especially Saturday which brought showers and a mini-windstorm. The wind kicked up a few waves along this rugged stretch of shoreline, and I had fun trying to capture the movement of the water, while waging a constant battle against the raindrops being blown onto my lens.

It was a challenge for me to find a pleasing composition in this location. The tide was low, exposing a messy jumble of rocks and boulders, so after a bit of a struggle I abandoned my preferred aesthetic of “clean and minimal” and embraced the chaos. Perhaps a little disorder better conveys the mood of a stormy west coast day, after all.

    Karen, no waves here, just rain. 🙂 I do think your photo is clean and minimalistic. The different colors are only subtly different and you have only water and rocks. Doesn’t get much less than that, although I know what you meant in your opening. The photo shows both the beauty and why that cup of tea was so welcome!
