Lifes a Beach

This summer has been exceptional. Taking it off work was a grand idea and one I don't regret. Morning hikes and afternoons at the beach isn't that hard to take.

This morning we headed down to a local beach to catch a skim boarding competition. Lots of sun, people watching and good tunes. Unfortuneatly I wasn't happy with many of the shots I took. I've been in abit of a slump as far as that goes lately. Oh well...lifes a beach!

Great to hear that you had a wonderful summer. I think the quality of your images grew so much over these months, too!

I think taking the Summer off is ALWAYS a great idea. Although I've only had one Summer off during my entire work history of 30 years.

Good for you and I love your photos!!

I can only imagine that a summer off would be totally wonderful.

I am so glad you enjoyed yours, Sandy. When do you go back?

Hmm, I'm getting homesick. Sorry we didn't have time to see you in June. You are still welcome down under!

I think I could stand morning hikes and afternoons at the beach! I can't imagine any of your pictures being less that perfect. I sure would love to own a D70. Anything bigger would be wasted on me!
You should see the hawk picture this amatuer photographer guy brought to me today. He's been trying to get a good picture of the hawk that's been hanging around our farm, and he got a couple of beauties. I'll scan and post it. He brought me a copy...so nice of him.

It can be a challenge to take good pictures in the summer, when you're out mostly in the middle of the day with the strong sun and harsh shadows. Having a flash unit can help, especially with people shots. In any event, we all go through slump periods where it seems we can't get a decent shot, but I think you've done marvelously well through yours!
