  4. Love these all, Ehpem! Wow, there are some great tones at work in this series, and the shadows and contrasts add a touch of drama. I’ve been looking at these for several minutes now, desperate to find a favorite in the set… no luck! They are ALL great!


    • Hi Melinda, and thanks! In the distance is the main way down to the beach and there seemed to be many more people down there and thus I suspect many more candles. But we did not go down that way as more people = fewer photography opportunities.


      • I am trying to recall if I have ever seen a person in your blog photos. I must have, in the distance perhaps. Do you mostly shoot early in the day, or at night? I know some of the places you take pictures haven’t seen a living soul for weeks, but many are shot in the middle of living towns.


  5. While the second and third certainly rank high on my list, I love the first! I actually said “ohhhhh” when you page loaded!! Wonderful series, thank you for sharing!

    I wish you and yours a very safe and Happy Holidays, take care.


    • Thank you David. Nice image of you at your computer! I like the baby buggy tracks paralleling the curve of the candles around the water’s edge.

      I hope you and your family have a great holiday too.


    • Thanks Ken. I really like that muted effect too. You can see I played around with it a bit. I even tried black and white and quite liked it, but decided it missed the point of the yellow candle light.
