Until recently, I had never been to the beach when it wasn’t jam-packed with people sleeping under umbrellas. It was kind of sad to see no one there, but at the same time it was fascinating to see what the shoreline really looks like. I was also half-expecting to see the Statue of Liberty half-buried in the sand, but I wasn’t so lucky.
One of the things I noticed was that the sun in the Autumn/Winter months was very different than it is in the Summer. The shadows were a little harsher and even in the direct sun the light seemed muted and dull. As a result, it didn’t take much to create the image you see below. It reminds me of the light in the very early morning, when everything looks gray.
