It’s Just Beachy

We’ve been home a week now, but Kathy & I recently spent a week on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.  It’s one of our favorite getaway destinations any time of year.  It was a little early in the season and we knew we ran the risk of cold weather, but we needed to get away.  So we went, it was nice and now we’re counting down to the next adventure.  In the meantime, there are photos!

The beach is one of the few places that calls my name so irresistibly that I have no problem hauling myself out of bed before sunrise. Because I don’t have to get in the car and drive anywhere, I can stumble out of the bed, dress, grab my gear and be out to the beach in about 15 minutes.

One of my favorite things is taking advantage of the low light and great color to make motion blur photos.  They have become a bit of a “signature” for me, and interestingly the motion blur abstracts are the photos that have sold best recently.

This is a mix of a few blurry and sharp photos from our week at the beach.  I’ve got a lot more work to do but was overdue for a post, so here it is!
