The transition between water and land creates so much for us photographers...
Ocean, river, lake, marsh, I'd enjoy seeing your favorite locations and compositions.

On a drizzly morning in Acadia National Park, North East of the US, the sun vanished under the clouds during the 30 seconds exposure. I believe that this transitions made for softer reflections on the sea and on the wet boulders.
Shot on 4x5 Portra 160, 80 mm lens.

If you are interested, there is a short video where I describe the capture of this shot on location. I hope you enjoy or even better find it inspiring.

Rugged coast of the Schoodic Peninsula, Acadia National Park.
4x5 Ektar 100, 15s f32, Nikkor W 135 mm. The wind got to the top of the threes... but it's not to bad.

How about the meeting of earth, water, and air?
Rolleiflex, Probably Kodak Portra VC. RA4 print (self-printed). On my bicycle on the way home from work, I rode over a small foot bridge and saw the egret below. I dumped the bike, took a quick reading off my hand, zone focused the Rollei and walked back on the bridge. The Egret took off as soon as I got there, but got this image -- horizon a little tilted...so it goes.

Tilted horizon, ash-gray river that looks like a road, fast moving subject... this is street photography! :tongue:

Nice shot and nice story! I love to hear to reason behind images.

The last image from my last day in Acadia National Park. It is a sunrise shot, but the golden light was dimmed by some distant clouds. Although some of it was there.
This place is a little bay called monument cove, because of the stone structure on the right of the frame.

This was shot on 4x5 Kodak Portra 160 and a 80 mm lens.

As usual for me in the past trips, I am documenting the exposures in some videos. I am working on building a better storytelling. I find it a useful exercise to identify what is my photographic "intent" in a certain location.
