Photo Diary of a Beach

I really love beachscapes. Apart from the grandiose awesomeness of the ocean, I’m astounded by the plethora of detail that makes the natural world so beautiful: patterns, textures, subtle and striking color variations, and the way these qualities lend themselves to the overall perfection of the composition they create. I have yet to meet anyone that gets as excited as I do about a murky tide-pool, seaweed strewn across a rock, or an oddly shaped piece of driftwood. I obsessively take pictures from various angles, hoping to capture that elusive thing contained in these seemingly insignificant elements that brings me joy.
