A foggy morning at Newport Beach shot with intentional camera movement
Just a typical day at Newport Beach…
Happy New Year!
I took so many multiple exposure shots while at Newport Beach! Here’s another- the pier.
Watching egrets on a southern California beach was new to us. We were used to seeing them in the marshes of the Bay Area, but watching them march through the waves on Newport Beach was a whole different experience. I took many more photos than I needed!
As I get ready for today’s Labor Day barbecue, I think about how Labor Day meant the end of summer when I was a child. Now, most schools have been in session for a couple weeks or more. This image is from last October’s visit to Huntington Beach; summer is still in full swing in Southern California!
I am thinking of getting my Fall wreath out soon though. . .
Looking down at the water from the pier at Huntington Beach- taken almost a year ago.
I’ve been going through old photos. Like most photographers, I have so many on my hard drives that have never been edited. This is from a trip to San Diego (Mission Bay?) about ten years ago. Our son was living there and was still single- how things have changed!
I have been going through old images recently and discovered this one from when I was first trying out Lensbaby lenses. I’m happy to say that I still love the blur!
White sails on a blue sea- is there anything more peaceful?
We spent a few hours at Huntington Beach, which has just been reopened after the oil spill. As always, we were transfixed by the surfing action, and I especially enjoyed watching the girls as they rode the waves.
Seeing otters is always a major highlight of any boat trip in Alaska, and we were able to see quite a few off Gull Island. Otters are always special to our family, because our oldest grandson was fascinated with them beginning when he was very little and continuing throughout his childhood. Now that he is a teenager living in Alaska, otters have become less exotic to him- but no one can really resist watching the playful antics of these delightful creatures.
Beach memories from our trip to Newport Beach a couple months ago. . .
Here is another almost abstract image created by using intentional camera movement and slow shutter speed. Although it might look like I added a texture, this is almost straight out of camera. I find it so interesting the different effects that can be created this way.
The morning fog was just beginning to give way to a bit of sunlight as I took this photo of a gull flying overhead at Newport Beach. I love the quiet of mornings at the beach!
