And Time Marches On

Bones in the Sand

Bones in the Sand


During low tide, the ocean gives up the bones of an old coal ship, the Howard W Middleton on Higgins Beach in Maine. We only had a small window of time to play among the wreckage before the water swallowed the ship back up.


Timing is everything. The light, the tides, the weather are play such a big role in creating an image. While most people might have been bummed about a sky full of clouds during a day at the beach, to me, it was a blessing. It was uncomfortable, chilly, and best of all, oh-so-dramatic. πŸ™‚

      Thanks! I actually always struggle with the titles…I easily spent 20 minutes today trying to find something suitable for this photo. It’s nice to have that effort recognized. πŸ™‚
