Before The Coffee » Photography

Atlantic Ocean

I jumped into the car about 5am and drove the ocean highway looking for a public parking area. I found a little creek that emptied into the ocean and set up and waited and hoped for some action in the sky. Do you ever wonder what’s behind the photographer when they take a shot of a photogenic scene. Well, I decided to take the backside shot of this scene. As you can see I moved forward enough to get the tractor tracks behind me.

    Love that you added the 2nd shot. So often I chuckle when I post something knowing what the place really looked like! Looks like you had company with you for the early hour. I’m impressed.

    John, thank you for the comment and yes I enjoy the journalistic approach. I’ve been doing it for awhile and I think I’ll start posting more backside shots. FerrellReplyCancel

    Gorgeous surf and sunset! Really nice detail in the water, especially the “bumpy” water in the foreground. And the backside shot just goes to show that what you exclude from the frame is as important as what you include.ReplyCancel

    That’s fantastic news, Ferrell! And these SC and Bermuda beach shots are beautiful. Your July 4th shot brings back family memories of our July 4th vacations (Seaside, FL among them) – mini flags waving, parades, hurricanes, fireworks, sand, my 4-year-old nephew in his black turtleneck and cowboy boots, my many flesh-batik sunburns… (I miss them – all but the last)ReplyCancel
