A matter of perspective

Tamarindo Beach never ceases to amaze and delight me regarding the gentle slope of the beach. Here you can see the patterns and color in the sand under a glaze of water and reflections. Reflections are common in lakes, but not in the water of the ocean.

This is the same scene of Tamarindo beach as my post below, but from a lower perspective, closer to the water. Which do you like better?

My wife and I took a tour of India about 5 years ago and we met a professional photographer from Los Angeles named Rhys. He would often get his camera down on ground level, so Julie and I refer to these type of photos as a "Rhys shot."

It was on our India trip that I lost possession of my camera, as Julie "borrowed" it and learned from Rhys, taking better photos that I did. From that trip on, we are two-camera travelers. We cannot share. By coincidence, Rhys was on the same tour of Morocco that we took several years later, so Julie got to advance her photographic skills to yet another level.

We are showing photos of Chicago this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

i love both shots but perhaps the rhys shot a tad bit more.

Introduce me to Rhys, please! Your landscape/seascape photos are wonderful images.

I like both shots too but, I have to admit the frothy churning of the waves has a special appeal to me.

Hey, thanks for this! One I never tried, and I most definitely will.
By the way, Mandy and myself went pretty much through the same process.
