Autumn and The Beach


It is amazing how nature’s details can take me away from life’s stresses. Here are some shots taken with my Canon point and shoot on my afternoon beach stroll.

  1. This are really wonderful shots with really nice colours, lights and reflections!!!!!!

  2. nicely done – for some constructive criticism – In my opinion, if you’d crop that first image down to just the “waves” in the sand it would be a much stronger image! More or less cut that image in half and let me know what you think! 🙂

  3. These are great. I especially love the red crab and trap. It’s almost abstract.

    • Hi Jane, I love that little crab, too. Funny, I was shooting the trap, enjoying the shadows and reflections and suddenly his claws popped up like he was defending himself– hadn’t seen him! He is about the size of a silver dollar. Very colorful fellow. Thanks so much!

  4. I loved strolling down the beach with you this morning around 6 30 am… Delightful – thanks for taking me along .. I look at things so differently when I am with you! Happy Thanksgiving my friend.., Linda

  5. Lines and Sand is great. The gradual change from dark to light as the eyes move from bottom to top makes the photo very visually appealing. Tidal Impressions is really good too. If the wave was a bit closer to the top third line that would be really cool.

  6. this is why we love kiawah…u have captured it!!

  7. Jane, the photos are exquisite and very dramatic . Tidal Impressions is amazing., crab trap photos very mystical. and the life , death seasonal ebb and flow theme of nature is ever so apparent …. I had to look back to check this weeks theme!

  8. Hmmmmm…….might be time to abandon the big cameras! Just shows its the eye that really matters! Well done.

  9. Jane these are beautiful pictures and your sunrise with a real camera beats mine with an iPhone…

  10. I love the way you captured the ever changing patterns in the sand — beautiful!

  11. I love the photographs and the quotations. A wonderful combination. Thanks for sharing.

  12. wow! Those were exquisite! Point and shoot – who knew! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Mary Lynn
