Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and far Part 2

Heavy tracks on beach in LouisianaCoastal US-8

The reason I love photography challenges is because they really push you to think about your work. The "near and far" challenge on the Daily post on wordpress.com is a great example. After searching through my galleries to see what could apply for that theme, I was surprised to find just how often I rely on the technique described in the challenge, which is the use of perspective, diagonal lines, and extremes between near and far objects in the composition.

Getting low and close to the heavy tracks in the foreground on this beach in Louisiana created an unusual perspective, provided strong contrast and allowed me to tell a story. I rarely ever shoot from a normal standing position and always look for a more unusual angle to frame my scenes.

You're so lucky to be living near such gorgeous beaches! Or at least, you're lucky to be able to travel to them to do what you are best at: taking photos!
It's a beautiful shot - love the striking contrast of the near wavy sand and the far umbrella + other stuff and the sea... :)

Very well done! Great angle. Shadows work well for this image.
