One of my favourite places is a beach. I enjoy walking along it in all seasons. The photo is from a windy day in January. As I have only visited the foreshore at high tide in the last few weeks, I am feeling quite deprived!
The photo I have chosen for this challenge from the Daily Post about layers of texture is a very recent one. There were many different sorts of clouds that day. Clouds are three-dimensional consisting of droplets of moisture in irregular layers.
The tide was out, so that layers could be seen: deep water, shallow water, wet sand, shingle, concrete.
In the distance there is a hill, which has more layers.
I use my Sony phone to take photos. Although I have been using it to take hundreds of photos, I have not yet discovered how to remove the shutter delay function. So I touch the screen and a second or two later a picture is taken. There is much uncertainty about how a picture of a moving object will turn out.
There was a swell on the sea just after high tide with waves breaking as they reached the shore. My first picture captured some spray. Fewer than half my photos from the same day had any real breakers and only one in four had large ones. So to achieve an interesting photo at the first attempt was against the odds.
