I always find it fascinating that clear water, when collected en mass is seen as blue in colour. This image shows exactly that; water up close is transparent and as soon as the water begins to wash in and out in waves its appears blue
2013 has been an exciting year for me with regards to photography; I finally managed to get myself a DSLR and was able to take some great photos with it at some amazing places. I have also been learning more about photography through a course as well as through all of you bloggers out there. Some of you have left helpful tips, while others have left kind and encouraging words, but I think most of all I feel that having seen photos that you have taken and published on your blogs you have really set the bar high, with beautiful, amazing shots of the world around you. I thank you all for your support on my blog and for helping me see the world in a different perspective.
I hope you all have a happy and successful 2014 and I leave you with some of my favourite photos from this year.
I find the tracks left behind on the sand in this photo by the tide sweeping in and out really interesting; it reminds me of sand in a desert that’s been blown around by the wind
I really like how the drops of water are clinging to the leaf, tempting you to give it a shake!
This is the pathway that leads to St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall.
Those who know about it, know that when the tide goes out the walkway becomes clear for you to walk on and leads you to the small island that has a castle or ‘mount’. The Island has many stories about it’s history, some factual, some in folklore, the most famous being it was once home to King Arthur.
Once the tide begins to come in the pathway begins to disappear beneath the waves (which I found out half way down on my way back to the mainland with my shoes getting soaked)
Once the tide is completely in from afar it seems like the pathway never existed and was perhaps even magic!
I’d love to hear your experiences of St Michael’s Mount and if you saw the tides coming in or out
