Beach Leftovers

 Wednesday, March 21, 2012

A week or so ago I went out to Santa Monica to take some pictures for this post on Silhouettes.  I posted the best silhouettes but was looking through again and realized there were a few other shots I liked from that shoot too that deserved some light.  I love going back and finding pictures that I originally deemed "un-postable" and finding something I love about them.

I love how every sunset is different.  I love how this one started out really orange, and then turned really blue.


This was one of my jumping silhouette outtakes. I missed the jump in the shot, but I still love how she is just running freely on the beach.


This shot sorta amazes me. I took it with my 85mm Macro lens and I love seeing how the sun meets the horizon in the last few seconds of a sunset.


I also took this with my 85mm of the Santa Monica Pier. You hear a lot about "golden light" photography, but this is the epitome of the "blue hour" when the sky gets bright blue right after sunset. I love how the lights from the Ferris Wheel pop.


Just thought I'd share a few shots that I originally overlooked :)

These are gorgeous, I know what you mean about discovering little "treasures" like this when you go back through your pictures, so fun!

I am with you Jaymi, I love going back and discovering a photo from a new perspective or seeing something I did not see the first time. These are gorgeous! I love the light in the first one and the color in the third. I also agree with you about sunset, they are never alike. Maybe that is what I am obsessed with capturing as many as I can :o). Thank you for sharing!

Trying not to burst into a fit of jealousy here...
The sun doesn't set over the water in FL (news to me!) and I was so hoping to get shots like this. Grrr. I set my alarm TWICE in FL for sunRISE, but it never happened. :-) That's a bit early for me.

The color is BEAUTIFUL in your shots! xo
