My wife asked for a sandy beach photo she can use as a print for a coffee table tray. I took several but none were just right. The most challenging request was to have the photo be mostly sand and only a little water or sky. While trying to satisfy her request I realized the horizon was what allowed my camera to auto focus. I need to study my camera settings to see what sort of autofocus options exist. I’m not interesting in manual focus but I am interested to see if I can shift the focus point from the center of frame to different locations.
Fishing is another enjoyable activity on Seabrook Island. In this case they have cast they hook into the Kiwah River which runs through the island.
Notice the puppy peeking at us.
Note that I am posting two photos today such that I can test a new feature on the City Daily Photo portal. A gallery, for each blog, has been added and I am testing to insure new photos are presented within 30 minutes of posting. Following is a link to the Seabrook Island Daily Photo gallery.
Today’s photo shows the beach at low tide. Lots and lots of sand. We enjoy long strolls, holding hands, enjoying the sounds of the water. However, the tides have caused us some difficulties. There have been times when we missed our walk because of high tides. And it was news to me that high and low tides are not consistently at the same time each day.
This last weekend, we enjoyed a safe outdoor meal at Hege’s on Seabrook Island. The staff wore mask, physical distance was easy to maintain, and there was an island breeze. We felt very safe and the food was awesome.
Today’s photo shows the entrance to Seabrook Island. The drive into the Island is lined with trees arching over the road. In fact you need drive carefully given the live oak trees are very close to the road. You pass by the Angle Oak tree, the Marina, and Freshfields Village.
Interestingly the entrance is one of the few places where you find flowers. The island is very green and the yards are naturally landscaped. So flowers are not that common.
