What happens when you haven’t been to the beach in days? The pull becomes too strong to ignore. The day before yesterday was the first day that provided me with a window of time to head to the beach.
The tide was out and the cloudy horizon line was illuminated by magical sunlight when we stepped onto Second Beach. It was one of those moments where you can’t help yourself but quietly exhale and pause for a moment.
We negotiated the rocky shore pausing every few steps to capture the light just once more.. several times.
The image above is my favourite image for this outing with the golden sun setting behind Partridge Island and reflecting in the shallow waters at Second Beach. I could not have planned this moment better if I tried!
We soon returned to the parked car where I captured the panorama below.
As I turned the car around we discovered that a nearly full moon was rising in the east. By the time I pulled into the driveway at home, the moon was shrouded in mist and had risen high enough to reflect in the Ferrells River in our backyard.
My contemplative outing was the perfect conclusion to a long and tiring day. I am grateful for the imagery that presented itself. All I had to do was seize the moment and go out for a short while, camera in hand.
Wishing you a great start to your Friday. Hope you enjoyed the images. Best wishes, Anna
