December CMMC Letter R

The photo I have chosen for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge (CMMC) this week is one I took on a morning walk along the beach. As a child using various film cameras I was taught never to take photos looking towards the sun. Digital cameras with artificial intelligence make this advice superfluous.

In winter the sand on the beach doesn’t dry out between high and low tide, sometimes creating a mirror-like surface. I took a few photos on our walk, but this one has reflections of the clouds and some ripples in the foreground. The sun appears low in the sky a week after the ‘shortest day’. Even the calm sea was reflecting the glare from the sun. The tide was coming in.

Blue sky and clouds with glare from sun all reflected on wet sand. Cliffs and a distant hill on the left. the incoming tide on the right.

November CMMC two S’s in the word

Cee Neuner’s Midweek Madness challenge this week is for a word with the letter S twice.

White cumulus clouds in blue sky at top, reflected at bottom by wet sand. Sea cliffs on left, see with white waves on right. People in the distance on the sand. Rockpools, or pools wih rocks in them.
Reflections by the seaside

I am very fortunate to live within walking distance of a beach. It gives me lots of opportunity to take photos of the seaside. The one I have chosen is from the last Saturday in October. The reflections of the clouds in the water on the beach caught my eye.

Another photo from the same day is here.
