    I guess it's strange to go to the beach in December, especially on Christmas morning during the thickest fog I've seen in a long time. But as photographers this is what we do, so most of you will understand. On Christmas morning I shot awake with tons of energy at about 5:00 AM, and the family was a few hours from really beginning to stir. So it's not surprising that morning photos were my first thought, and I thought the desolate, foggy beach might make for some interesting subjects.

    Anyway, on with the photos.

    #1 - Parking lot for Sea Bright Public Beach. The bright, pre-sunrise sky to the east combined with an amber light in the lot to create some deep blue and red shades in the fog.

    #4 - The waves have a photogenic effect on the iron deposits in the sand

    Fantastic series!
    Excellent feel, colors and tones, compo. Nice textures. These photos really tell you the feeling there, well done. You have a great "eye" there. I like #3 or #23 the best, er...I think.

    Out of curiosity, what equipment did you use? Film? Digital? Etc, etc....

    Keep 'em comin'!
