I'm always happiest when I'm by the sea, sitting on the sand watching the waves lull onto the shore, the white foam and the bubbles amongst the gorgeous blue and green hues, I think the sea is one of the most beautiful sights to look at and I love capturing beach/sea and sky photos on camera, I always think the contrast of blues from the sky and the sea complimented with the gold/white colour of sand is just stunning.
These pictures were taken on St. Ouen's beach in Jersey, locally referred to as the 'five mile'. It's one of my favourite places in the world and if I could live there one day then I'd be extremely happy. The beach is so long and covered in soft, white sand. These pictures were taken on September 1st, the first day of autumn and there definitely was a chill in the air. We were on the furthest, left hand side of the beach and it was quite a task to get to this spot, let me tell you! We had to climb over sand dunes, go down stone steps, walk along a stony/sandy ridge whilst carrying bags and my camera around my neck. We could have went along further and just walked onto the beach but what fun would that have been?!
It's amazing that I didn't have to edit these pictures, I just did an auto adjust to correct the lighting - the clouds were covering the sun in intervals so some of the pictures were either too dark or too light. I think the sea around Jersey is just beautiful, the hues of blue and green have an almost tropical look to them, amazing to think this island is only an hour away from home by plane.
I was a bit obsessed with taking pictures of Corbiere Lighthouse, it looked lovely on the day, I must walk out to that lighthouse someday. If we go back to Jersey next summer I'd love to rent out a VW camper van - you know, the old hippie ones, and camp out on the beach for the night. During our week in Jersey we had a BBQ and drinks on this beach, it was so much fun and I even ventured into the tide for a swim, it didn't even seem cold, the Prosecco may have helped with that though!
I left my soul there, down by the sea... and I can't wait to go back there someday.
