Symphony Of The Ocean

Symphony Of The Ocean

Photographer | Eduardo Fujii

I took this shot at Carmel River State Beach on the California Central Coast, a protected beach south of Carmel-by-the-Sea. It’s a favorite spot among locals. The sea is usually calm, giving someone a false sense of security. Strong currents make these waters very dangerous. On this day in January, wind waves also contributed to the perilous sea. Extremely dangerous, but incredibly beautiful, the scene left no doubt of the mighty power of nature. I was captivated by the vision and sound of breaking waves resonating in harmony with my own inner sensations flowing within, just like Tchaikovsky’s symphonies.

Dream Flower

Dream Flower

Photographer | Julia Sable
This picture was taken on a meadow at sunset in the Poconos—the light made this flower look almost unreal. I had my small camera with me, a Canon G10, which did a fine job in this situation.
