A beach holiday

Saturday dawned cool, but sunny. It was Dec. 1, I finished with NaNoWriMo (and successfully, thankyouverymuch!) and since I had missed my photo hike last weekend, I got an early start this weekend.

My goal was to attempt a sort of Christmas shot. The beaches around here truly are snow-white. It’s similar not only in hue, but in texture to the cold stuff from up north. The sand is very fine and drifts much like snow.

My new header was my best holiday shot of my outing. I’ll keep trying until I get the image I want.

I also visited a natural trail in my hometown. It features a mile-long, wooden boardwalk that meanders through a marshy bayou, and around a tannic steam. I took my new self-portrait while peering over the railing.







(Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, Nikon CoolPix S205 and/or iPhone4)

  1. Very beautiful, Tara! Love the header and the photos. Congrats on completing the NaNoWriMo successfully! Can you believe I forgot to validate my 80K words on Nov 30? Well i did- and felt like an idiot.

    😀 Got my novel with me though 😀

    P.S.: That sand always fascinates me. So fine!


  2. Tara – Love the new self portrait 🙂 Congrats on NanoWriMo, that’s no small accomplishment. Both ornament shots are oh so perfect with the light angles.
