2020 Photo Challenge #41

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

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. 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.
