This was taken near the end of a beach in Carteret-Barneville, France, in Lower Normandy. It’s a popular coastal destination in northwestern France, but on this mid-April day, my friend and I were the only ones there. That’s generally how I prefer my beaches.
I spent a few hours today researching the kinds of images that buyers are looking for these days from stock agencies; many feature the kind of dreamy, nostalgic, over-saturated or blown-out mobile app filter looks that I generally haven’t really gravitated towards. When they first began to appear, I decided it was a fad that would quickly pass. That hasn’t been the case in many instances –obviously– so decided to get with the times, at least with this image, and play a bit in post. Thoughts?
‘Off-season’ is the theme for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge; it’s a favorite time of mine to visit corners of the globe that are enjoying a much-needed break. Below are a couple others along the same theme that I’ve published before, both on coasts. Because that’s when I generally prefer my beaches. 🙂
