Sepia Scenes - Sepia by the Sea
Sepia Scenes arrives as I attended my non-profit's fund-raising event. The Wheel-a-Thon was held near the beach on Long Island Sound in West Haven.
The day was beautiful, the blue sky reflecting nicely on the water. Yet this is hardly sepia - but the sand is. The seawalls and jetties can be accented in this monochrome quite well.
The top photo offers rocks and concrete, and the light antique edit adds a subtle monochrome. And a nice touch here, as the often obnoxious seagulls are making nice in the briny waters...
The next view is all sepia. There is more sand, a weathered wood fence, more passive gulls and piers. The beach looks fine in this hue.
The high tide (9:15 AM) is now receding. Of course with the miniscule wave action on the sound, the high tide encroaching a mere 6.2 feet (1.9 M). This was a day to savor, the sepia as warm as the late Summer sun. See more sepia at Mary's fun meme...
