Spain- Alone on a Beach
I love black and white photography. I really love beaches. So why not combine them...
The beaches of southern Spain have trees growing on them! Not just little whimpy ones, but great big palm trees and oak looking types. It's really amazing.
On this particular evening, a storm was slowly brewing off the coast. Great big nasty looking clouds were slowly rolling in behind a blustery gale. All you could hear was the smashing of the palm fords and the crashing of waves. Really awesome.
I thought the combination of the individual trees and the darkening skies on the empty beaches would be an interesting subject. I like composing images dealing with isolation themes- hence the result.
