Sepia Scenes #24 Atlantic Beach Fishing Pier


"Atlantic Beach Fishing Pier"
Atlantic Beach, NC - October 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Sepia Scenes - Brought to you by Mary the Teach
Voting is closed for Nicole B's (First) Scavenger Hunt. My thanks to all that voted for me, I appreciate it greatly. Rumor is that the second edition will begin the end of April. Watch this space!

After spending the last several weeks exploring some pretty cold parts of the country, it's nice to return to the beach. Even though this shot was taken on a cool October morning, the warmth of the tone and the nature of the scene are a welcome relief from the brutal cold of Rochester and February in the mountains.Violence Unsilenced

Simple and interesting photo.

I could use some warmth, too.

Beauty! I can't wait to see the Ocean again, will be going to Hawaii in June! :)

I really like this - the composition draws your eye to all the different areas of the photo, and the sepia gives it a lovely warm feeling.

Roll on summertime!

Love this one and the clean/dirty pic! It's interesting to hear the stories behind the pictures. The composition of the Spring House is perfect!

That's the closest I've been to the beach in a long time. Thanks for the taste.

Very nice. Is this what they call still photography?

Great detail. Sepia agrees with wood.

When I was a little, the family vacations went often to cottages on the New Jersey shore. There were Adirondack chairs that had the look of the beach furniture pictured. And I remember the splinters that always seemed to appear just as you sat down on them...

Sepia really helps you to see the beauty in the woodgrain. Lovely!

I love the tone. Something about the colors of fall, it just always comes out in photos. :)
