Winter meant that I could grab photos with less “human clutter”. Come back in the summer and this place will be crawling with sun seekers for sure. With the scarce crowd, I could concentrate on making photos that highlights the wide expanse of sand, including some of the more adventurous high key treatment as you can see below.
And probably my best non-running environmental portrait. I passed the camera to Geraldine and just asked her to snap away. She made 2 shots, both very nice requiring no cropping. I didn’t adjust the horizon level of this one and I purposely blew out the highlights in post to get this effect. Shooting RAW meant I had a great leeway to get creative. Some banding on the top right but it’s perfect to me.
Even though lugging the heavy body and lens was a pain, literally, making such photos to look back on make it all worthwhile. If there’s any shot you fancy as your wallpaper, just let me know and I’ll turn it into a downloadable format.
