Taste of Gower Oxwich 6 – Stripes on the Beach

wet stripes on Oxwich beach

Stripes of water and sand on the beach and stripes of cloud in the sky at Oxwich Bay (see below).

On my walk this week with the Taste of Gower walkers at Oxwich Bay, the walkers ahead of me stretch across the beach and as the sun comes round I find that using my zoom lens (a Canon 70-300 mm 1:4 – 5.6 IS USM for those of you who are interested) brings out the contrast of light and dark. This both emphasises the striped patterns on the beach and the shade of Oxwich point in the background.

Adjustments are possible in Adobe Lightroom of course but, as in the previous post, I find I like the atmosphere created.

Heading back to Oxwich Bay Hotel for a cuppa and looking up at the blue sky, the rippling patterns in the clouds reflect some of those on the beach and the sea.
