sepia Scenes - Sandbar


Sepia Scenes allows a warm monochrome in any scene, in any season. Summer work well should we consider the sand itself an almost sepia surface. The look of Kalmus Beach, one of Barnstable's fine beaches on the Cape. The tone is fine here, as there were light clouds set upon a pale gray-blue sky. Sunny but not necessarily bright. The sand is the right color. So the total view is beach-like from the top to the bottom of the frame. Soothing and relaxing, as vacations should be.

At at the edge of the boardwalk is a beach wheelchair with the large balloon tires for easier transport over the sand. I have used these, and sometimes it is just so nice to have your bare toes in the sepia sand. A nice touch, too...

See soothing sepia tones at Mary's great meme!

A beautiful beach scene, Ralph, and it looks very nice in sepia - the sand is a perfect choice!

Pretty soon I'm sure we'll all be longing for the kind of weather that makes beach-going perfect but I suspect that any excursions to the beach for quite some time will require quite a bit of layering for warmth. Still, there's something beautiful about the ocean in winter, too, isn't there?

Oh, my. This sure has a timeless quality about it...feels like stepping back in time when it is enlarged.

What a lovely beach, and how great that they have beach wheelchairs. I've never seen those here, what a great thing to have available.

On this very cloudy day with the views out my window of bare trees and brown leaves scattered about the yard this wonderful sandy shot has me wishing for warmer days and beachtime. :)
I've never seen a beach wheelchair at any of the beaches I've ever been too - how wonderful.
Have a great rest of the week Ralph!

I love scenes from the beach, Ralph, sepia or not! This one is wonderful! I didn't know there were wheelchairs with big, fat wheels to roll on the sand! Isn't that great! Happy Sepia Scenes! :)

Lovely beach and I love seeing all those sailboats. I'm glad being in a wheelchair doesn't rob you of the joy of playing in the sand with your toes.
