October’s theme / technique: Seascapes
This can be your typical beach scene of blue water, white sand and beach umbrellas, or it can be more dramatic. Above all make sure you are safe and not likely to be cut off by the tide if you go wandering along the shoreline. Winter storms can make for dramatic shots of waves breaking over a promenade or against the cliffs, but don’t take risks.
Consider three essentials – place, time and means. The most important being place. To discover the perfect position you might have to take your time. When you see a view that looks promising, put your camera away, slow down, walk and look, walk a little more and look a little harder.
- You might like to soften the water or freeze the waves..
- Rocky outcrops, lighthouses, surfers, lifeguards all make good subjects
If you are unable to take seascapes or don’t have any in the archives that you would like to use then by all means substitute seascapes with landscapes. This week it is easy – simply capture a sunset or sunrise or a reflection.
This week's assignment - highlight a dramatic sunset or sunrise or reflections on the beach

The clouds are very beautiful, especially in the first shot. I like the lines going out towards the sea in the second – your prompt made me pick those out while perhaps I might not have noticed before. My post is from almost two years ago, though it seems much longer than that as I revisit the pictures. https://susanrushton.net/2020/10/14/sarasota-sunset/
The sun sets more to the south as we head into winter so this coastline is good for a different view. The tyre tracks are by the amphibious vehicle.
I had wondered. It was either that or something to do with the old sea creatures Doctor Who battled back when it was Jon Pertwee.
Lovely photos – the first one is my favourite. 🙂
