Swing on a beach

There’s something about the ocean that always makes you feel a little cooler, perhaps it’s the cool ocean breezes, not really sure. What I can say is that the lakes in Switzerland just don’t have the same effect, I go for a swim and cool off, that works but as soon as you are out, within a few minutes I’m sweating like I was before I got in, simple solution really, stay in the water :).

Crashing Wave

I don’t recommend everyone do what I was doing with my camera in the Seychelles, my gear was getting pretty wet. I spent hours in the water with my camera or up close to the surf, luckily the waves are fairly timid there. I don’t have an underwater housing and all I did was wipe the camera down with a damp cloth to remove any salt residue. If you want to get unique shots you are going to have to put your camera and sometimes self at risk.

This shot was taken with a Nikon D4, a camera that can take a beating. I have treated most of my cameras this way including the non weather sealed ones, most of them have survived, dust, water and dirt can be wiped off the one thing that’s been effective at destroying my gear is dropping them. In the nearly 10 years I have been taking photographs I have destroyed 3 bodies and 2 lenses.

Seychellois Runner

Louise decided to go to Mallorca for a week. You can’t really blame her considering how bad the weather has been here for the last few days. The only problem for me is I have to work, the weather is miserable and I want to go to the beach. Her constant updates via text are making me so jealous. So I decided to look through my lightroom library for some beach photographs.

Here are a couple from the seychelles, the first one I’ve posted on the blog before, it’s one of the few photos I’ve got round to printing and hanging on the walls. The second photo is taken on one of the most popular beaches on Mahé.

Creativity

I’ve been posting photos and on this blog for nearly a year now. What I’ve come to realise is by doing this I’ve grown creatively not only in my photography but also in other areas of my life, I’ve added creativity to my work. I’ve learnt a lot about my own photography, what I like and what I don’t.

I look forward to the next year and what changes it will bring to my photography and this blog.

One of the favourite places I’ve been since I started the blog was the Seychelles.

Thinking of warmer places

It’s been snowing in Zurich pretty much constantly for the last week, and after being sick I’m kind of getting sick of the cold.

Here’s a photo from one of the my favourite sunsets we had in the Seychelles last year.
