“Swirling Tide” – Espasa Beach, Spain – Lujo Semeyes – Featured Photographer

This is one of those “I wish I was there” (IWIWT) photographs.  I can feel the cool water and sand between my toes.  There is a strong breeze blowing and I put on an extra layer, but dare not miss what promises to be an excellent sunset.  After reading Lujo’s account it turns out I am not that far off.  Although maybe the water is a bit cooler than I expected.  Please  visit this and several other “IWIWT” photographs at Lujo’s portfolios  500pix.com/lujo and flickr.com/lujo.    Here are a couple of other great links of his in Spanish asemeyando.es and exodos.es

Here is Lujo:

The photograph was taken at the beach Espasa (Asturias) in this medium, just at dusk, on a day of very low tide, leaving bare rocks are usually not visible.  I chose this day for the state of the tide, and be having a polar front, which provided a good sky.  As an anecdote to relate, on arrival it was snowing, but did not cover the sand.
