Thanks very much! 🙂 Good many cheers to you,
Ah thank you for the comment and dripping by! Many cheers,
Amazing sunset shots. Great work!
Oh thank you! When we pulled up, and I noted the sunset, I realized, “Oh would it not be the most brilliant plot to get a shot with the lighthouse figure to the right?” “Yes! Brilliant” I responded to myself. I craned and hopped and darted all around, nearly crashing into a couple walking some very large dogs in my ardour, but this image was impossible from either the beach or the usual path. I looked down and saw a mini-mire, sort of swamp, many mosquitoe-swathed mangrove trees humming, and a “path” that was really mud-flat. I had no wellies, and was at the mercy of the blood-loving insects. I dashed right into the sinking, slimy mud, nearly slipped right into oblivion, but managed a bit of balance, ands moved along as fast I could, mud squishing, splashing, dashing all over me. I continued with a tenacity, hopping onto a rescuing rock or root whenever possible. It wound around and finally met the water and some SAND. The water chimed as it rushed along, smelling of brine- and I found paradise. Hooo worth it!! Only a few dedicated fishermen, and nutty photographer-wish-oh-wish-they-weres, get to gaze upon this sight. Right ho! Thank you for the comment! Many smiling cheers,
Wow, you just took me through a beautiful/visual journey you had! Can I tell you this is what happens when I myself see something beautiful that needs to be captured so I can show the world? The dashing between couples walking their dog, I can totally relate to that! My friend and family thinks I’m crazy when my photography juices are captured by moments like this. What a fun craft to be passionate with eh? When the eye meets the beautiful craft, it is irresistible and inevitable to ignore!
Oh that made me roar, oh dear. At last, I am not the only one prone to accidentally mowing over sweet romantic dog-walkers! We do get lost in that moment…and when we see something NOTHING will get in our way! Or rather, we don’t see the objects in our path as we frantically scramble about, and feeble apologies fumble behind our speeding forms.
Oh the misery I must put people through. I will often be photographing something like a fascinating insect on a blade of grass, and the way my camera is pointed, it looks like it may be directed at some cantankerous bloke walking by, and I am delighted with an obliterating scowl as I look up from insect land.
Then there’s the beach. Suddenly, I see a pelican sitting right on the glazed sand, before the swash, at sunset, to watch the waves. He’s a bit down the beach. I start sprinting, nearly trip right over a relaxing family on a Disney-mouse towel, nearly collide with happy, squealing children gamboling about, “That photographer is as bad as the kids…” come grumpy complaints following after me. My “Oh dear sorry, sorry, excuse me”s dribble behind in my wake as I run with the camera poised, on a mission. Only to have to take a spill and slowly crawl once I get close enough. Oh the comments I get from that. “Are we crawling behind enemy lines, now are we??” Oh bother…
Then there’s the “Oh blast look at that!” and I suddenly spill to earth for the perfect angle of some little miracle, and someone nearby rushes over, “Oh my are you all right??!” Thinking I’ve fallen. Then they want to know all about what I’m photographing. “A twig” I reply as I get up, “Would you like to see it?”
Aye it is a craft that drags us through quite a life of adventure that it does!!
Wow, thanks for the laugh! You’ll be featured soon on my blog! Stay tune!
Oh thank you haha, thanks for sharing the laugh with me. A pleasure!
