fleeting fog

 

This fog lasted only a few minutes before the sun broke through and promptly evaporated it.

sea fever

I must down go to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying. ~ John Masefield, Sea Fever

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wanderlust

water painting (2 images)

Yesterday morning I enjoyed a beautifully mild, breezy wander at the beach. I decided to try experimenting with my 6-stop ND filter and different shutter speeds to see what effect it would have on the appearance of the water. By changing my lens’s aperture, I ended up with a 1.3 second exposure for the top photo, and a .6 second exposure for the bottom.  Do you have a preference?

rock solid

There is something reassuringly solid about this landscape. The rocky shore endures the battering of the waves, the rise and fall of the tide, winter freezes and summer’s baking sun. It seems as though the only thing this beach wouldn’t be able to withstand is a rise in ocean levels, which may eventually drown it, and what a shame that would be. For now, though, it is holding its own.
