I finally finished editing some photos from last December. I was wearing a parka when I shot these, so you can imagine the beach wasn’t too crowded, which was really lucky, since otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to shoot these. This guy was kite-surfing for a while during sunset, and there were moments when he was literally flying. It was unbelievable, and I will be posting some more shots of his athletic prowess. It was a lucky time to be shooting :).
I have so many photos to edit I don’t even know where to start. While I figure out which way to go next, these are from my vacation last summer, the one sunrise I shot that time. This time there were more days that weren’t completely overcast, so there will be more sunrise posts from this place. Until next time!
Hi there, everyone! How did your 2013 start? Mine started with overcast skies, howling winds, lightening, thunder, and rain. 2012 went out with a bang, quite literally, thwarting my plan to shoot the last sunset of 2012 and the first sunrise of 2013. I got the next best thing, though, the last visible sunset and the first visible sunrise, and all the sunsets and sunrises I shot while I was on vacation were gorgeous, so I’m not complaining about a little bit of (seriously) bad weather.
These shots aren’t from my vacation, though, because I haven’t had time to edit those. They’re from last February, a fantastic stormy sunset shot at the local beach. Hope you like them!
Happy Holidays, everyone! I love that it’s time to make Christmas cards and plan vacations again. I know that I did a lot of things this year, but December still catches me wondering where the heck 2012 went. How come 2013 is almost here??
Anywho, since it’s that time of the year again, I decided to make my two lists, 2012 Achievements an 2013 Goals, and while I was at it I also decided to make a slideshow with my favorite shots from this year. My, what a year it’s been! I’m glad to read my 2012 Goals from last year and realize I met most of them :).
I’m going on vacation in a few days (provided we can get the car fixed on time, cross your fingers for me!), and I’m going to spend New Year’s Eve by the Atlantic Ocean, because I couldn’t have it any other way. I decided to start my year by shooting the departing year’s last sunset and the coming year’s first sunrise, on my favorite beach in the world, by my beloved ocean. Expect a lot of photos when I get back :). Wish you all a magnificent 2013!The best of 2012

This post is for you, Jeff, because you asked for it :). I love photography, and I love this blog, but sometimes I get so wrapped up in everyday life that I forget to make time for my passion, so thanks for reminding me I needed to post right now!!
Fortunately, I’m passionate about my work, too. I can’t believe it’s almost December and my last semester of college is almost over, but I’m glad because I know I made the most of it. I’ve started working on my thesis, and it’s so much fun! I don’t mind the paperwork, I don’t mind the crazy deadlines, I just love being able to write about something that I love. There’s nothing better than waking up every morning feeling grateful for all the wonderful things I have in my life :).
I took these shots on my birthday week, this beautiful sunset was nature’s gift to me. Hope you like them!
