Ballybrannigan Strand

Nikon D70s, f9, 1/320 sec, ISO 200, 27mm equivalent (click to enlarge)

This beach can often be found deserted throughout the year (save for the odd sunny day here and there). Yesterday the sun was out – and so were the crowds (sort of). I think the people on the beach help to give depth and scale to the picture.

My inspiration here was that greatest of photographers, Ansel Adams, specifically his picture “Point Sur, Storm”, taken in 1946. Have a look at the link it is a great photo.

Time Out…

I’ve been working a lot recently (makes a change I hear some say ;-). So without my feeling any guilt at all I decided to take the morning off and we went for a walk along the beach at Ballybrannigan. What a beautiful morning it was, not even a hint of rain and what a lovely walk and time together it was too…

I came to the conclusion that God is pretty good at the whole “Time Out” thing. He gave us this beach just to ourselves and the sound of the waves and the feel of the water on our toes did just the job to recharge the batteries.
