Lone figure looking out to sea.
I love beach scenes because it’s a minimalist landscape and allows the photographer to concentrate on single elements, and in this photo I was inspired to take a photo because of the figure in the distance, engulfed by sky and sand.
I love the mood and atmosphere of a beach, and they are places of freedom. You can play an impromptu game of football on it or play catch with a frisbee….and there are never any ‘no ball games’ (well, not usually!)
They are places where you can be on your own and be disturbed by no one. You can have a picnic on your own or with friends…and no one will move you on or disturb you.
They are places of nature where town planners have been told to keep away, so the beaches belong to everyone, and that’s why I love the beach.
