I ventured out this weekend to catch low tide at a nearby beach. Due to the California Current the beach is often cold and foggy. Fortunately my companion brought a fur coat.

Extreme low tide also means extreme high tides. This has swept the beach and pushed some sort of sand bug high up the beach where they dig through a layer of black iron sand, bringing it to the surface.

My guess is Jakov or Paco.

This was before I had the pleasure of meeting Paco in person. However, the depicted gent who by the way lives in The Hague, I have met many times. Always resulting in enjoyable moments.

Well, Jakov or no Jakov, let's soldier on with more beach scenery.

On a late autumn trip to the Lofoten Archipelago, Arctic Norway, I snapped these kids frolicking in the ice-cold waves rolling in from the Arctic Sea. Water temperature could not be much above 8C - it was really *chilly*. Not that such insignificant details deterred them. In fact, they came running straight onto the beach stripping their clothes on the way and went straight into the waves.

I had been shooting IR with  D70 which was not modified, thus had a completely black, opaque filter in front. I just had removed camera  from the tripod thus shot straight from the hip and hoped for the best, despite late afternoon and low light levels.

A few years later I visited the same Lofoten beach again, still late autumn, and now had our esteemed NG Crew member Jan Anne as model. Thus I could make the setup more elaborate and some times even direct him to the desired spot on the beach. I had to jump into the water myself to convince him this was ""pleasant"". With my modified Nikon D5300-IR I could at least see what I was doing.

This was the preferred result from that session. Many other frames were OK, but this had just that little extra, I think.
