No matter how far a person can go, the horizon is still way beyond you.
Zora Neale Hurston
There’s little that captures the feeling of “beyond” better for me than the horizon at the seashore. It calls us to reflect on what lies further than our eyes can see.
I am always awed by the wild power of waves and lured by the immensity of sea vistas.
These images were made at Hutchinson Island, which is one the many barrier islands that shields Florida’s east coast from the Atlantic Ocean.
I experimented with some longer exposures and a bit of intentional camera movement to create a soft, dreamy, blurry, impressionistic effect.
For me, the muted bluey-green of sky and sea, the white of the foamy surf and the soft brown of sand are among the most restorative colours to be surrounded by — at once soothing, exhilarating and contemplative. How does being at the seashore make you feel?
