This week is a throw back to last summer with long days on the beach and gorgeous sunsets. This was a very windy afternoon with the sand whipping around our ankles, however with the sun dropping I quickly went back and got my gear and started grabbing some shots of my friends.

Silhouettes can be very good for keeping the distractions in a photo to a minimum and just concentrating on the subject itself or the action taking place. Here I wanted the golden yellows and oranges to surround the subject as they jumped up through the light.

These last two photos show the wind blowing the sand along the beach, turning it into a mist while having a focus on the drift wood. These are still silhouettes, but without the focus on an action subject – adding the blue sky draws the attention to the landscape.
