Great photo! But if you rotate it 90 degrees right in Photoshop.(like I did, hope you don’t mind) Then you can see the face hiding in the reeds or strange trees.
Lovely photo! I’m guessing a person and his or her canine companion??
Great! (I was going to suggest rotating it too…)
Enjoying the light/colors in this.
Cathy, thanks! You know I thought of rotating it but liked this the way I shot it. It’s a whole different image the other way, isn’t it? and I like that too. Glad you enjoyed it.
Joan, thank you, and yes there were a number of people with dogs on that beach.
Lucy, you too, heh. I like the energy of the vertical, the sense of depth in the movement forward beyond the upper frame.
MB, pleased that you enjoy it! The light was perfect for taking these kind of photos (with the addition of a little photoshopping).
How sights like this must have encouraged early humans to make their own marks. I am particularly entranced by the elements that look like scrunched and folded plastic formed them.
This could be engraved metal or ceramic or sand and a hundred different images. The important thing is that you saw its potential.
Olga, yes! We think alike…
Anna, thanks. Absolutely, that’s what intrigues me about looking very close.
Your photography seems to have suddenly blossomed… or should I say your eyes have dived into the earth and you come out with gems! I love the photos you’ve been taking lately.
Miguel, thank you so much for your wonderful words! I have been doing a lot more photography, and I’m most excited by what I found on our last trip to one of our favourite places on this earth – the west coast of Vancouver Island. We had one perfect late afternoon in which I went mad with the camera! Often it’s a bit of a hunt to find such treasures in my daily life. Hope you are well – you’ve been silent for too long on your blog!
I’m really sorry about the silence. I’m finding it really hard to find words these days… actually much inspiration for anything. My job and the place I am living in is killing me. And WAY too much time alone. It’s really getting to me. I can’t live without the ability to wander and spend time doing such things as you are doing with your camera these days, and I need to have friends around in order to remain sane, so… and the internet has a way of making me feel more isolated. When I feel this way it is hard to put anything into the blog any more because I always come across as complaining all the time, and that is not what I want to be doing. So, silence.
But it IS inspiring to see you in full swing with your photos, so that is something that wakens my own words again.
I just have to get to the point where I can move away from here, too. It was a mistake coming to this place and job, though it was a first step. More and more I am considering Vancouver, Canada, if they will have me. Not sure how much consideration immigration will give me…
Miguel, I’m so sorry for your pain. You have many friends/readers and I’m sure no one minds reading your complaints as you call them. I’m glad my photos might inspire you, as yours have me! I wish you courage and hope that you can take the next step in your journey – if Vancouver works out, I’d be thrilled to have you here, and be of any help I can!
