Spent the weekend at the beach, recharged my batteries and spent some quality time with my camera. With the rapid descent to the end of the school year now in full swing, I am clinging to moments such as those this weekend to keep in my mind as I move forward. This is a photo taken at Fort Stevens State Park, one of my favorite beach parks in Oregon. This is of the dunes on the walk to the see the sunset. I wanted to capture the soft colors and with a bit of tweaking in Lightroom to the basic settings it conveys the dreamy quality I felt when seeing it.  

Settings: ISO 200, 32mm, ss1/100, f/9.0 (cloudy wb)
"Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    I noticed earlier that you used to link up with Creative Exchange. Now I am starting a meme that will be similar to CE. I will start slowly with only text links. For now I have a testrun up. And then I plan to start with the first one on Monday. You are welcome to check it out and maybe join in the test if you have something. Welcome!


Thank you for leaving your thoughts! I love reading your comments and critiques.
