Savenger Hunt Sunday . . .



. . . the Beach version, of course!
I just love when it works out this way and you get all the prompts
by mid-week, especially when it happens by accident you planned it that way (wink, wink)


[ beneath your feet ]

I love the beach, and I love these coquina clams...watching them migrate the beach and feeling
them beneath my feet as they bury themselves.


[ capturing movement ]

It really is a good thing for digital cameras or I would be broke taking photos of birds in flight. Somehow I
managed to get this Sanderling in focus while trying to pan and get some blur in the rest of the photo. I see some practice in my future.



[ texture ]

Empty goose barnacles on a large tree limb picked clean by the birds. Lately there have been some very
large trees washing up on shore?



[ face your fears ]

Well, I kinda feel like I'm cheating on this one . . . can't say I had much fear and maybe because
my curiosity got the best of me first. When I first spotted these coming out of the water from my chair
I had no idea what it was so I went to investigate . . . it was in less than a foot of water. . .



 . . . and what to my wondering eyes did appear, but a stingray! He was about two foot wide and he wasn't
alone, there were quite a few of them that had come to the shoreline to feed. It was my first stingray sighting
in the 4 years that we have lived here and I might have been a wee bit excited! ; )
(Some of you might be excited that I didn't share again, my spider pic from Friday, you are welcome! ha)



[ currently ]

Currently, this is my view as I enter down the road to access the beach . . . ahhh.

[ Your Sunday Best ]

Have a wonderful long Memorial Day weekend and be sure to check out all the other participants!

Love, Kim
XO

Wow you have the best photo's, I just love seeing your work.
Amazing that you caught shots of the Stingray - I would have been a little more cautious then you. I'm a big "chicken."
Loved your Capturing Motion and Currently Shots - Just so lovely.
Great texture with the barnacles on the log and the Beneath your feet was pretty cool too. You are so lucky to be able to visit the beach that often.

Oooooh, how I miss the beach. I haven't been in ages. We're talking at least a decade.

I might have to watch "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" now, and just pretend I'm at the seaside.

Lovely pictures!

Kristin

Melanie said...

Danelle said...

I am loving the beach version....we are kind of landlocked here in Colorado. :) These are all gorgeous, but I really love your first and last shots.

Pat said...

Lovely beach captures. I love those little clams.

Karen said...

Thank you for submitting a beach version! I want to be there with you. The sanderling with its shadow is beautiful. I think the panning worked! Also, I love the contrast of your Currently photo to all of the beach pics. Your depth of field choice works perfectly.

tiarastantrums said...

oh to live near a beach!

Susan @ Sunflower Status said...

Oh what great finds! I especially love your flight shot with the gorgeous shadow. Simply stunning.

Oh, to live by the beach and see such sights, Kim! Beautiful!


Thank you for sharing at Your Sunday Best this week. xoxo

Jenn said...

Love your movement shot! WOW! Your whole set is great!

Ashley Sisk said...

WOW - you did it again. I really love movement and currently.

Amanda said...

LOVE currently. I would frame that one or something :) Now can I go to the beach, please?

Kim Cunningham said...

These are amazing. I audibly said, "oh wow" at the second shot. The movement, the shadow, the water...all of it a perfect recipe.

Kathryn Dyche Dechairo said...

Ooooh, you're making me jealous. I could do with a dose of 'beach' right about now. How neat to see stingrays, I've only ever seen them at aquariums.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

WoW! Sharks & Stingrays... You find the coolest stuff on the beach! =)

Cathy H. said...

Love your beach shots! I would love to live nearer to the beach! Love your bird shot, beautifully captured including the shadow!!

Patti said...

I loved spending time on the beach via your shots - thank you!
Coquina's are a favorite of mine too. But your movement shot with the bird - your "panning" is ExCeLleNt!

Steph said...

Love your texture shot. Who can resist beach shots?! Can't wait ro get there myself next month.

hiflight said...

Thanks for a great set this week. Wonderful ideas and great shots. Love them.

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Your panning bird shot is great!

Shannon Pate said...

Wonderful wonderful wonderful!! I can't even pick a favorite!

Brenda said...

How lucky we are to be able to share your beach scavenging - especially those of us in the land-locked Midwest. Love that first shot of the clams - and great panning shot of the bird in flight.

lisa. said...

Kim, these are wonderful.
Every one of them makes me think of a beautiful summer day at the beach.
So nicely done!

Rosie@leavesnbloom said...

wow what a great selection - loved the texture one but it's the panning one that I think is awesome - well done on that - panning is something I've been trying to do but haven't been as good as you in getting the birds in flight to come out as crisp as that.

Kelly said...

omg Kim...these are all fabulous...that capturing movement is awesome. Really great set.

Liz said...

Delightful series Kim!! I love the beach. I love all your shots but my favourites would be your movement & currently.
