Ocean View: Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
The voice of the sea is seductive; never ceasing, whispering, clamoring, murmuring, inviting the soul to wander for a spell in abysses of solitude; to lose itself in mazes of inward contemplation. ~Kate Chopin
I've slowly started editing some of my Hilton Head photos...I have so many to share and will continue posting them in the coming weeks as I get to them. Here are some ocean shots I'd like to share...it's funny how, at the beach, I find myself pointing and clicking with my camera over and over again, sometimes taking 30 or 40 shots of the same view in a matter of minutes. I think it's because I'm in such awe at the beauty of it all that I keep wanting to capture it before it goes away...but the stunning view never leaves. And at sunset by the ocean, the lighting shifts by the minute, so you really can take constant photos and get completely different results as the sky changes colors. It's always breathtaking...and I never grow tired of it. I was also so thrilled with the clouds in the sky this year - they were spectacular each and every day we were there! They add so much to a photo.
I hope maybe these images will invite you to take a breath for a moment...and that maybe your blood pressure will go down just a little bit. The ocean does that to you, you know...
