I like it a lot too. It was my best photos from that day. Beautiful, all the shades of blue and gray It was cloudy when we got to the beach and it was almost empty. It thundered a bit but never rained. The picture is beautifully composed. It makes me wish that it was summer, and that I was walking on a beach. Me too. Your granddaughter’s tracks look more like swishes than footprints. Was she trailing for worms? Trawling I should have said, I think. No. Two of her cousins were also there and I think the bucket was full of smaller stuff, shovels small buckets, strainers. Yes, that does look like a mermaids track… I’m enjoying everyoe’s beach photos as so far they have all been taken on uncluttered beaches far from the madding crowd, My favorite beach condition – empty, or nearly so. Loved the contrast of the red bucket. A lovely picture. Yes, I think that little bit of orange is a nice contrast to the blues and grays. With a bucket that size Kylett must have had a bigger catch in mind. Delightful photo catches a subject unaware. She had supplies for sand castle building in there. Yes it is a lovely photograph. And I bet you could build some massive sand castles with that bucket! Funny, I think they ended up spending most of their time jumping the waves and playing in the water. A hazy sky, blue ocean, gray sand, & your granddaughter in bright blue carry a big red bucket. Poetry in a picture! A very simple but powerful photo! Very arty; it would make a lovely poster or canvas. Tybee is my favorite oceanfront and the only place I’ve met real sand dollars. We lived in Savannah for 15 years and enjoyed it best during the quiet times of the off-season. In the really olden days it could have been Robinson Crusoe’s isle as well. I forgot about it being an island! We lived outside of Charleston, SC for a year and found real sand dollars at the beach the Isle of Palms. Also found them at Jekell Island. Lovely shot. The undulating dragging of her feet has made a smile for the two eyes in the sand. Arghhhh! Wish you hadn’t pointed that out. Now I keep seeing that face. Beautiful sandy beach. The ones up in the Northeast are so rocky and the water is cold. Will have to make a trip south sometime. Comments are closed.
