Gone Swimming!

What’s better then riding your bike along a beach promenade? Locking it up and going for a swim, of course.

The wedding that I attended when I was in Israel was an afternoon wedding. The venue was on the beach with a spectacular panoramic view of the sea. As the wedding was winding down and guests were starting to leave I did what any photographer would do…go for a photo walk. Ok so I was in a cocktail dress and heels but I wasn’t going to let this opportunity pass me by. I kicked of my shoes, grabbed my camera and off I went and came upon this scene.

  1. Good eye to spot and photograph this interesting beach scene.
    Weddings on the beach are quite popular where we are also.

  4. How nice it would be to live within a bike ride of the sea.

    I’m not sure what you did to process this, but I love it. It has a “sandy” texture that suits the beach! Also like the shadow of the bike. Nice!

    • Thanks Laurie. After processing the image and make slight adjustments for shadows and highlights I applied a texture overlay.
