This weekend we escaped to the cottage. Although on Friday morning I was not looking forward to packing up and getting there, waking up to sunny blue skies on Saturday morning made it all worth while.
I took my camera off to the beach, to capture some textures and colours. I was amazed by the autumnal feel to the path on the way to the beach, down to the river, over the foot bridge and through the sand dunes. Usually I am keeping up with the kids as they race to the waves on the beach, but on Saturday I had time to linger on the path and here are a few of the images I captured.
It was lovely to not have to defend WHY I was photographing a frost-burned nettle leaf!
On the beach, the autumn colours continued with some amazing variety of seaweeds which had been washed up that morning. The surf was impressive, and a few brave souls were enjoying the waves.So, lessons learned this week
LESSON 1 – I miss spending time taking photos, and I need to do it more often.
LESSON 2.- I love the beach out of season
LESSON 5 – Someone has asked me to take photos at their wedding THIS SATURDAY! Lovely to be asked, but now slightly panicking! It will be a very informal wedding, and they don’t want any of the traditional photos – just lots of candid photos and a few wee details. I have permission to share some of the photos on my blog – so be sure to come back to see how I got on.
LESSON 6 – This is STILL my fave place to photograph trees!
