Writing inspirations found in a photo of a beach scene

Every so often I happen to take a photo that I later find inspiring, one way or another. Like this beach scene from Petone, at the north end of Port Nicholson in New Zealand.

Petone Beach, Wellington district, New Zealand.

For me, in this scene, it’s the interplay of wind, of colour and of shape; an abstraction that gives rise to abstract ideas as much as to the memory of the day I took the picture. Hopefully you’ll find it inspiring too.

    1. Thanks. Yes, hope the weather smiles on your beach trip. I presume that’s some distance from Colorado! (Here in NZ there is nowhere more than about 70 miles from the sea… A continent is a wholly foreign concept…🙂 )

    1. We get quite a bit of variation – interplays of light and shade that change even through minutes. Wellington and district has rather the opposite geography – we could do with some more flat land!
