A day at the beach

For me I think there’s nothing like a beach day . And last weekend I had a great one. I went, with the best company to Villasar de Mar, a town north of Barcelona.

I also had the opportunity to take a lot of pictures and I loved the results . At first it was a little afraid to face my camera to the breeze, water and sand but then, as the sunset approached the light became so spectacular that I could not resist . Of course I must add here that  I have a huge preference to photographing with this light. There’s something about that time of the day that is find very special.

Freezing waves

I spent some time photographing the waves. I loved how they lit up and I wanted to freeze the motion and light to remember, and share the feeling of peace they gave me. The sound of the waves crashing on the shore, the soft sunlight at its perfect temperature and the feeling of soaked sand under my feet.

Everytime I see pictures of waves, my attention is caught by the forms they make. Sometimes they seem more like if they were solid sculptures than water. So, I tried to capture some of that in my photos and I must addmit i’m pretty happy with the results.

Sand Macro

With such good lighting and this type of sand, I could not resist to take some macros. The beach is a beautifull picture when we put it together, but it’s always good to look at things a little more closely and appreciate all the details.

Here is a small gallery of the photos I took that day. There’s a bit of everything. Enjoy!


I enjoyed this day very much, especially now that I live in a new country where there isnt summer all year round . Iim starting to appreciatte and enjoy what each season has to offer. Soon I will have the opportunity, for the first time, to photograph winter. But for now we still have a little more summer to seize.
