Whiffen Spit Phogtography

My plans for some early morning landscape photography were derailed by heavy fog near the ocean, so I adjusted them and went to a location where I figured I could use the fog to my advantage and make some interesting photographs; Whiffen Spit.

The tide was out so it made for opportunities for photos looking back up towards the path from down on the rocky beach.

While I was not the only one out for a morning walk at Whiffen Spit, there did seem to be fewer people about than on many mornings.  The fog made the path seem a little more isolated than usual.

Sometimes the driftwood along the walk takes on interesting looks, and this can be enhanced by the foggy surroundings.

It was a good morning with no wind and quite calm waters.  This made for some nice reflections.

It seemed to be a good morning for the birds, too.  They were all around the path and waterfront, although the fog often made it difficult to get a great view of them.  Just when I thought I would get a fantastic closeup of a heron reflecting in the water, I must have spooked it, as it flew to higher ground and perched upon the railing of the pier walkway.

I’m glad I was able to change plans and have an enjoyable morning walk with my camera.  I hope you enjoyed the images!
