Yachts, Shoreham Beach

Yachts off Shoreham Beach, West Sussex October 2020

During October, we had some lovely weather in Shoreham, which made it feel like a gradual change from summer into autumn. At the time, the COVID number had slumped and people felt more comfortable being away from home. As you can see, the Sun shone and lots of people took the opportunity to take their yachts for a cruise off the coast

I keep coming back to Shoreham Beach. I suspect, it is because haven’t been to the seaside in such a long time. Or it could be because I like drinking warm coffee while I get blasted by on shore gales. I don’t know.

While I was taking these, another photographer was doing things properly with a long lens on a tripod. The guys on the windsurfers seemed to know what they were doing, so I’m wondering if I gate crashed a photo shoot! In which case, I thank them for their generosity.

Dawn – Cedar Key, FL

Dawn, Cedar Key 2000

I can’t believe I took this almost 20 years ago!

The night before, I had driven down from Atlanta. The last few miles had been quite slow because deer kept jumping from the side of the road (might have made interesting pictures) in what was quite a rural area. Finally we pulled up at the motel and piled into our rooms.

The next moring, my mum was thumping on my door – to show me the sunrise. I think I walked about 5 feet from my door – and took this picture. Can’t say I deliberated long and hard. But I still like it.

Incidentally, Cedar Key is a nice place. Quite low-key. Must go back one day.

Technically, I took this with my first digital camera a Nikon Coolpix 950, which produced 2 megapixel images.
