There are many beautiful places to see in the winter. Some of which are only quiet in the winter. For example, the beaches in Eastern Shore Maryland. Typically a tourist attraction during the summer months, Ocean City becomes a a locals only kind of scene. Here you can take advantage of peaceful walks on the beach, quiet sunrises, and listening to the waves. From our balcony I noticed that the windy conditions were creating interesting effects on the waves. When I went out on the beach to try to capture it there were many challenges. 1. The bright sun. 2. The sand blowing. 3. The waves were breaking far out-I would need to go in the water because my zoom max is 300mm; which I was not doing at 40 degrees. Winter to me isn’t just about snow and cold, but also about visiting quiet places where nature comes out to play.
