Little Hunters Beach..shortly after the colorful rocks photographs


Hunters Beach


In both cases, I got just a bit wet.  I didn’t mind.  🙂

    Too different! The mist comes in quite quickly doesn’t it?


  2. Wow, getting a bit wet was certainly worth it for these terrific shots! Great contrasts. I can almost feel the mist, and hear the crash of the water onto the rocks.

  3. Love the juxtaposition of these two beautiful images. My heart leans toward the misty, but the clarity of the deep blue is a show stopper.

  4. Excellent depiction of the waves hitting the shore. I like the first one of course- moody mist adds both drama and serenity.

    • It’s a timing thing and requires many attempts to get the waves just right, Yvonne. Sometimes you think you know how the wave will crash over the rock and it fizzles and other times you think it will be a bust and then a great splash happens and you wish you had clicked the shutter. Fun.

  5. Getting a little wet is a small price to pay for worthy landscapes—just as long as your camera equipment doesn’t get wet.

    • As I mentioned to Carol above, the getting wet part isn’t a big deal…I do that all the time here in the brooks and ponds. That one big wave though…
      I was shooting along side another photographer and he was quite concerned with his boots getting soaked. I did have my bag well above the water line by several yards, but the tide was coming in and the several yards was becoming fewer.
      I am not sure of the photographer, but a while back I read an article in OP by one well-known guy who was shooting at one of the rocky beaches in Acadia and just about got swept away by a wave. His equipment got swamped. He did get the image but at a big cost. I am always aware of the waves, but a really big one could have your name on it…so to speak.

    Apart from the pines, the promontories, and the stone beach, the first photo looks remarkably like Galveston Bay in winter. I do love the fog, but we’ll have to wait a couple of months for those good seafogs to roll in.

    I especially like the water swirling around the rocks in the foreground of the second photo. The color and clarity of the water are so enticing. We have about six inches’ visibility at this point. It’s our water and we (sort of) love it, but goodness, it can be ugly.

    • As I captured this image, I was reminded about your preference for definition in water rather than the softness a long exposure creates.
      If I take away the things you listed, I don’t see much left in the first. 🙂


  7. The contrast is just stunning between the two images. I love the gorgeous light in the second and the thoughtful mood the fog creates in the first.
