Moment of Impact

by dSnider in Rise/Sets

Here's another from the amazing sunset we had on Navarre Beach this past weekend. Had a lot of fun playing with the waves in the foreground.

      This place is a far drive from my home. I wish I got this view everyday. But I am lucky to live in the country though I admit!

      This is a place called Navarre Beach located in Northern Florida. This is the Gulf of Mexico. :)

      Holland is near the top of my list for places I hope to visit! You have a beautiful country in it's on way! I have a few friends that live there. :)

      It depends on where you live in Holland. In the North (where I a come from) it is flat, windy and agricultural. In the East (where I live now) it is hilly, lots of forest, more cities. In the South it is more hilly and warmer. In the West most people go to visit Amsterdam, The Hague, the beaches. I also love the beaches and we go there several times a year. Amsterdam is very nice, but I prefer The Hague (with Scheveningen), Delft (pittoresque), Gouda, Volendam. Just depends on what you like!

      Such a small country with so much diverse landscapes and things to see! My friends live in The Hague and visit the beach a lot. From the pics I have seen, it is a country I hope to be able to see most of while I am there! I know Kinderdijk and it's amazing windmills are on the list when I do make it over!! Thank you for the information Stezi!

    Picture postcard perfect, Dennis :) Great motion and I like the soft colors. I can't wait to get to the gulf to experience the sea and try my hand at this kind of shot. Gonna be a fun time at the meetup!

      I cannot wait man!!! Gonna be a blast! You guys are gonna love that area of Florida. I'll even recommend some places to go in the area for you. I haven't been to that area in awhile now but I sure am thinking of getting back there soon. Thank you so much about the shot! Each wave gave me something totally different. So much fun to play with.

      I sure do. Just to long of an exposure to hand hold and get things sharp.

      You are welcome Lucie! It doesn't take much...a small stream after a heavy rain storm can be a lot of fun to use this technique with so just message me anytime! :)

    a quiet evening..... the sound of the waves just murmuring..... no big turbulences.... peace....yet.... so much drama within... what a game of the water... softly shaping the sand... what a fullness of colours.... lively turquoise against mellow apricot ........
    simply magic Denis !!!

      Thank you Barbara! I just love the amazing blend of colors you can get in that area. The sand is sugar white and reflects whatever colors there are. You can get some interesting lighting down there as well! Not another person out there in sight the entire hour I was there except my buddy that was with me. Had a cold beer and waited on the light. Haha!
