Peaceful Winter Beach

Abercrombie beach. Kodiak Island, Alaska. Joseph Classen.

When I can’t find, or run out of, the traditional “snow-covered stuff” that becomes the primary focus of my winter photography efforts, I often find myself heading to the ocean to capture what I refer to as seascapes. It is precisely because of the specific contrasts and color schemes that are generated by winter that water comes vibrantly alive, becoming bluer, bolder, more prolific, and offers tremendous potential for creating great images! Not to mention, there is just something incredibly relaxing about being alone on a tranquil Alaskan beach, listening to the entrancing sound of the waves, and watching the sands of time ebb and flow in the swirling waters. This image is of such an occasion.
