Windblown

by dSnider in Rise/Sets

We were actually hiking across the dunes to get to the beach for the set when we came across this really cool shaped tree and decided to set up here for the set. The white sands of the Florida Panhandle do a really neat thing and reflect the color of the sky. Fading into a blue hour, the sand took on a blueish hue.

      Very honored by your kind words Barbara! The sand is truly magical in that area. I love how it changes color with the sky. I have shots from this same setup from 3 minutes earlier and the sand is a warm orange color because the sun was still hitting it.

      I just love the sand there. It is as white as sugar and I like how it will reflect the colors in the sky like that. Thank you very much!

      Most welcome m'dear! Would love to just lay on the sand... I missed the beach! My beach time is every January-February for there are not that much people on shore, there I can relax and be in a serene place...

      You would LOVE this place then. Beach time is only starting and you can go for a long long time without seeing anyone else in this area. Very relaxing for sure!!
