|From the Pacific to the Atlantic, today our beach photos are literally coast 2 coast. Debra is in New Jersey and I’m in California … these are just a couple of views we get to enjoy in both of these incredible locations.|
Today’s photo was taken in Ocean City, NJ on 10/12/16 at 4:54 pm. My camera settings were f/22; 1/25 sec. and ISO 100.
New Jersey is comprised of 130 miles of coastline, spanning from Sandy Hook to Cape May. I am fortunate to live extremely close to many of the amazing beaches I call home. I’m not sure what it is about the beach, but a sense of calm and peacefulness comes over me whenever I am at the beach or as New Jersey-ans say “down the shore”. Whether it’s summer or winter, I can be found photographing the sunrise or sunset at one of the beaches near my home.
I live close to Brigantine, Ocean City and not far from Cape May. Each beach has a different feel to it. Brigantine is typically where my husband and I go to relax and sunbath. Ocean City, is family oriented and is a dry town. Ocean City hosts an amazing boardwalk with many restaurants and shops. Cape May also has fabulous beaches and is home to the Cape May Lighthouse and many Victorian homes, which are mainly bed and breakfast inns. Sunset Beach is located along the Delaware Bay this is where you can witness the Flag raising and lowering Ceremony each morning and night from May through September.
Until next time . . . Deb
If you didn’t know about this spectacular little beach appropriately named Shelter Cove, you might never find it. There’s a steep staircase behind a local hotel that takes you down to this incredible little spot.
The coast here in San Luis Obispo County California has so many incredible views of the pacific. It wasn’t too difficult selecting a photo to share today. I’ve had the pleasure of doing a few photo sessions in this secluded little location. It’s warm and protected. There’s a great little arch at the southern most edge and if the tide’s just right you can walk over to the other side.
Being at the beach is something I love. It really brings a sense of peace to me. I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into the Central Coast of California and could imagine a little extra peace for yourself.I thought I’d also share my camera settings for those of you interested. This image was taken at 3:30 in the afternoon, December 20, 2015 at f/3.5, 1/500, iso 100. The gorgeous lighting at that time of day and the shadows it created added so much to my image.
See you on Wednesday.
