Rocky Beaches, New Zealand and Newfoundland

Here are more photos in the general theme of collections I didn’t know I had:

  • Rocky beaches in places starting with an “N”
  • Rocky beaches photographed at the level of as-close-to-the-ground-as-I-can-get-and-still-get-up-again

As for the second point, that somewhat subjectively defined level changes year over year, I regret to report, but my plan is to maintain my current level for as long as I can.

    Nice collection, Isabel. Always nice to get down (while one can☺) low and give the viewer a different/better feel.

      Jim R – Thanks! Odd that it should be photography that might motivate me to retain at least a modicum of strength, balance and flexibility.

    Changes in perspective do make a difference. Low down is one option. A few years ago I saw a book, possibly called “England from 1000 feet” — aerial shots of places most of us see only from ground level. Fascinating….

      Jim T – Drone cameras are already changing photography – and, I suspect – what’s possible for the dedicated amateur. But learning to operate another machine is beyond me, I’m pretty sure, so I’ll settle for what I can do on my own two feet. Or belly.
