raking the zen garden
There is a whole different world that exists at low tide and as such it is why I love getting out when the tide recedes back. The low tide reveals rocks, seaweed, neptune necklaces and all other manner of sea crustaceans, and most importantly (well that could be debated but..) it reveals some different perspective and compositions for seascaping.
I had my trusty tripod spread eagle on adjacent rocks and i too was not far from it to minimise the amount of wet feet that i would have to endure on the long walk home. The sun was up but muted by the clouds blanking the horizon and as the waves gently rolled in and tracked down the S-curve of my composition I relaxed and watched some crabs cautiously peer out to see wtf this crazy human as doing 😉 Mornings like this are like raking a zen garden for me 🙂 and trust me, i have raked a few zen gardens in my time 🙂
