Wonderful series! They are all great, although I have a soft spot for the golden ones of the beach and sunset.
Oh how I miss the ocean......

Thanks for the compliments!

The funny thing is that it's really not all that far from Arizona to the SoCal beaches, only a day's drive. But for some reason it seems like a long, long way. There's a number of places I want to visit in Arizona but never quite seem to get around to going there - it just seems so far. And yet I'll occasionally drive up to places in NorCal that are as far/farther without much thought.

All are lovely, Harriet. But, if I had to choose just one, the 5th one with the twinkling of sunlight on the breaks in the sand is it.

I can't imagine not living near the beach. Luckily I've always lived somewhat near one coast or the other. Not only the images, but the sounds as well. I can hear the sounds in your images. The laughter of the children, the lapping of the waves, the gulls crying.

Wonderful!

4,5,7,8,9 are my favourites. I like the silhouettes, the clear lights at the pier... really nice. Colors look good on my TFT, too.

Thanks for sharing,
Th.

Thanks again.

John - I loved how the lights came out as stars in that one, it was an effect I wanted to get and f8, 2.5 seconds worked nicely to get it. I'm still not entirely sure what creates it - aperture, shutter speed or amount of light difference. The first Ruby's picture was taken at the same f8 aperture and the shutter speed was 2 seconds, so not hugely different settings.

Patty - It's not all that far from where we live to the beach, but it seems like such a far away different world, and we don't go very often. I prefer to do it over-night so I can capture both early morning and sunset, otherwise it takes too long to get there for dawn and we'd leave too early for sunset.

Th - thanks for letting me know which you like best. Always love silhouettes.
