I live near the ocean and I am always captivated by its constant motion and changing moods. I never tire of photographing the ebb and flow of the tides, trying to capture the fury when a storm whips the white horses to a frenzy sending the spume spraying through the air like the mane of a wild stallion. Or the calm, gentle drifting of the waves on a summer’s day when the ocean is inviting us in to swim in the cool water.
Over the years I have collected many photos of the ocean in its many moods. In response to Ailsa’s theme of motion here are a few of them.
Meanwhile the families enjoy the idyllic conditions of the beach on a calm summer day.
But the ocean can change its mood and then you must just watch in awe as the wind whips the waves into a frenzy, the ocean roars and swells in a huge destructive force that carries all before it.
