The ocean's surface dappled in fading light

Weekly Photo Challenge – Water II

For my next entry in the weekly photo challenge H2O, I revert to my recent trip to New England.

We headed out from Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod in search of whales, the ocean was calm and the harbourside was bathed in sunshine. Alas, on rounding the tip of the Cape we headed into a thick blanket of fog.

Not exactly a day for the camera, but I didn’t want to give up that easily. Shearwaters scattered as our boat closed in on them and at one point the sun almost broke through, dappling the water and giving an almost silk like effect.

There is no colour in the images, but then there was no colour; the fog had a dampening effect on everything.

Arriving back in Provincetown we slipped out of the mist and into a lovely blue light at the end of the day. Colour had returned to the water.

The magic of water, even when there is little light to play with it still gives you something.

Hope you are enjoying this challenge as much as I am.

    1. Thank you Anne. I think the portrait shot of the water works alot better than the landscape header shot – it brings one more into the picture and has more foreground detail, but I’d be interested in your view, as a real artist…..πŸ€


Love to hear what you think
