Beach Shots

Some great beach quotes I found-

“I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm.”

“I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.”
-- T. S. Eliot

“Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.”
--Robert Henri

“My life is like a stroll on the near to the edge as I can go.”

“Our memories of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone.”

“The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
--Jacques Cousteau

“I dropped a tear in the ocean, and whenever they find it I'll stop loving you, only then.”

“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.”
--Mother Teresa 

So fun watching this kayaker ride the waves.

This is one of my favorite pictures that I have taken. You never know when the shot is going to happen. Always be ready, being spontaneous with your aim is key. Some of the best shots you can take are of candid shots- when people don't know you are going to take the picture. Even on portrait shoots I love getting to know the person I am shooting and let them become comfortable and relaxed. 
Love taking pictures at the beach, makes me nervous though with the sand getting near my camera. Just like anytime you go to the beach, sand gets everywhere!
