Same place, different view. Funny how the raking light flattens the perspective; the foreground is the side of the cliff and yet looks to be almost in the same plane as the gray beach below.
I like the stripe-y effects of this photo as well as the muted softened colors. The sun bleaches most of the depth out of the water and leaves the sand looking blurred and fuzzy.
When I take these photos, the sun is in my eyes and I can barely see to compose the elements. I have no idea what the colors will look like and very little feel for the total composition. So it is a gift when something unexpected works. Photography is such a distinctive and variable form of art-making, and continues to hold curious surprises!
