By The Sea

By The Sea

This is really for &VisionOfHope who mentioned he loved to be by the sea. I have been taking a few photos recently. Not many come out the way I want, should really use a tripod. But the pictures are taken on walks, not photographic outings and I have enough catching up to do, without setting up a tripod and tripping over it. We have had beautiful weather here the last couple of weeks and the tide has been right to see the grey Heron, even if I missed it a couple of times . So I took the camera with me a few times and got seeing it, though I wasn't happy with most of the shots, even when I used the telephoto lens. But here are a couple that show the sea (Belfast Lough, leading into the Irish Sea).

I think the one of the seagulls should be entitled "Come on in, the water's fine!" The grey heron caught a fish and I caught it on camera but the photo wasn't good enough to use.

I enjoy the pictures and believe I would very much enjoy visiting that seaside town.

These are perfectly good photographs. I find that using a digital camera makes me a bit nervous. i have more fun with my 35mm Pentax and Canon. They both are pretty nice to use. For my own pleasure I would put a tripod at a beach at a secluded spot and do a video recording of the natural sounds of the sea to playback later to help remind me of how relaxing it would be to relive it.

These are great pictures of BelfastLough by the sea. I wish I were there.

I would like to get an audio recording of sea sounds. Just haven't got round to working out how to do it. I may need to purchase a gopro or similar. Are your Pentax and canon film cameras? Can you still get film?

Considering they are snapshots ,they are very good .What I love the most is the first one with a blue and gold sunset.

Appreciate the pictures. It feels good that I can see a glimpse of the sea at least. I have been missing it lately

I grew up and live by the beach. I have lots of photos and videos on the other site (sunrise, low tide, high tide, fishes, seashells and crustaceans, etc.)

Those are great photographs! I'm sure &VisionofHope appreciated the shout out and this post and photographs!
