I took some time to explore the coastline this evening. With a fresh snowfall, I had to be careful of my footing as the walking was not as easy as the covering blanket made it appear. I prefer the Atlantic in the wintertime– the cold air and conditions, I think, are a better complement to it than the warmer breeze of summer. Taking the camera out with me, I had to be extra cautious on the seaweed and rocks– it may seem like an inconvenience to carry, but it is always worth it after.
It did not take long for me to get my feet wet in one of the many trapped pools of water; sometimes though, those things are necessary to a fulfilling trip out. Taking many photographs of the scene, my fingers began to work more slowly with every picture, and at times, it felt like I was climbing a salty snowcapped mountain for a better shot and look around. With well-positioned rocks being the only cover from the wind, I chose the more protected areas, when possible, to take in the view. I do, however, know it is good to breathe in the cold ocean air, and I felt its positive effect the rest of the night. I did not want to wait for it to get too dark before leaving and so heading out, I was glad to find an easier route than I had taken in.
