Crescent Beach, British Columbia, Canada
March, 2008

My introduction to evening photography; this was another of many shots taken as we raced along the beach front, grabbing every view possible as the sky turned from daylight through deep blues and into vivid hues of violet and purple…

    Absolutely love this Paul-wonderful composition and the tones and colours are superb. A definite favourite.

  • Thanks so much Dan.. I’ve been playing around with my tones and colours in this to acheive the black without going into B+W and was so pleased with the depth of it.

    oooooh…. this is unusual. The way that you have composed this image in a way that really shouldn’t work, but which the tones and textures make it work absolutely spectactularly!

  • Hi Rhana.. and thanks so much! Well, my last upload was “weird” and this one “unusual”… I’ll happily take them both as compliments.

    Deep Blues and Vivid Violet and Purple, yet you tease and tantilise us with some toned down chilled out and laid back TTT as a treat.

    If this shot were an artist it would be Marvin Gaye, crooning away and plucking gently at the heart strings against the temptation to open up the satutation and make your eyes bleed a la The Prodigy.

    Smooth as silk, a perfect calming tonic of innocence magically wrapped up in a giftbox TTT. Nice

  • I’ve just read your comment again (I briefly read it this morning) and it still makes me smile! Toned down, chilled out and laid back just about sums me up… you’ll still not catch me doing Marvin Gaye on Karaoke though! Oh and I went through my Prodigy stage back in the day… guess I must be showing my age!

  • Oh… and thanks Stuart! :-)
