    Relaxing Monday evening - Beach & Light Trails

    Trying to find a different vantage point around the Goderich Harbour (Lake Huron). At the end of the Cove beach, I spotted a grassy mound that aimed back toward the ships loading at the salt mine.

    Wale beach under very harsh light

    In the beginning of the XXth Century during Summer, people lived in this beach chasing wales which were appearing nearby. These days, of course... The light is very harsh but the way way not better. Many pebbles make it hard and dangerous. The Sun was very bright and strong, also.

    Before and After Travel Pic

    I always liked this pic I took of 4 kids who used to sell us their families handmade products on the beach in Nicaragua. It was a grab shot of them heading on to the next restaurant and included clutter on the beach that I preferred not include. As much because of posts growing out of their...

    Mussel in the sand

    An attempt to capture the stark simplicity of a common Mussel embedded in beach sand, in just about the most interesting light that a beach would have to offer, and in hyper-detail using an extraordinary (but cheap and forgotten) lens from the 1970s - on B&W film, of course. Olympus OM-1...
