Sandy beaches make for nice walking but are rather featureless for photography. But we have to try... :rolleyes:

Gorgeous shot Dan! You nailed that one. Well doneπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
Thanks, Ralph.

Great shot!
Thanks for commenting.

I really like that one - perfect shutter speed.
Glad you enjoyed it. Sometimes success comes in spite of my best effort. I was using longer ss to try and completely smooth the water. But the clouds were moving too fast and were also blurring. So I dropped ss until the clouds looked OK and this was the result. Go figure...

Beautiful
Thanks, Woody.

As you perfectly demonstrated, color is almost everything when trying to make a "boring" subject interesting. Very nice!

Thanks for the comment. The world is usually compelling enough if we just capture right the moment.

Many times, creating the desired image requires problem solving. Your explanation is a great example of "problem solving" in the field!

Very nice. Agree with comments above -- shutter choice was spot on. What I truly love about the shot is the repeating lines -- cloud, waves, beach edge, lines of snow on the beach.... Excellent! And of course, the sunrise colours are simply gorgeous.
