Why I Love This Shot – Sunset on Zamami

It was only a matter of time until my other half made my “Why I Love This Shot” series. It seems fitting that it would be from our recent travels to Japan on our honeymoon. I spent ages in the waves experimenting with shutter speeds and playing with angles – all while trying to avoid the saltwater spray as the tide came in. We’d been snorkeling for the day on a different beach and had decided to walk around to catch the sunset at the other side of the island. A moment which is now a favourite memory. x

Why I Love This Shot – Into the Water

“Why I love this shot”  with a little bit of a difference for you today.

This is my border collie Abby venturing out into the waves. I love this image for so many reasons. The abstract style from my lensbaby spark. The light and bokeh. The blur and liquid feel. The fact it reminds me of how brave my once very fearful collie became before she left us. Her love of water wasn’t something she was born with but instead, something she realised as her confidence grew over the years. Images like this make me smile.
