Beach Ball by onewing

Beach Ball

Following on from yesterday's photo of the oyster beds at low tide, I walked further up the beach close to the mangroves and thought I would take a photo of this mangrove in the sand at low tide. I didn't keep the ball on the piece of wood for long because I didn't want to set fire to it in the heat of the day.

Just behind me on this stretch of the beach is bushland and the mangroves, then across the other side of the road is where the bushfire was a few weeks ago.
oh this is gorgeous! love the tree :)

do you carry that crystal ball with you all the time?
January 3rd, 2019  
You are brave going out with your crystal ball again after your inadvertent warming experiences!!! Super shot. I really must get mine out and work out how to take something fun with it.

A fabulous fav Babs! This is what I shall be striving for with my ball but it may take some time. Love everything about this - the colours, clarity and subject.

Lovely- I took my orb with me yesterday to get some beach shots. Holding the orb in the right place takes some practice

Look forward to your lens ball photos for those of you who have got one.

@maggiemae Thanks Maggie. I did think about turning it upside down but the wood log on top of the ball just didn't look right somehow.

@peterday No I don't take it out with me all the time it is heavy in my camera bag.

@casablanca I stayed away from dry grass. Thought I could get the picture quick enough before it set fire to the log ha ha. There is already the remains of the bushfire behind me so didn't want to get caught starting another fire.



@kjarn No fires, the bushland behind me is still burnt out from the last fire.

@kjarn ha ha I'm trying to forget about that one. I steered clear of dry grass. I thought this log would be safer but i didn't hang around too long, it was bloody hot
January 4th, 2019  
This is fantastic Babs, beautifully done
January 4th, 2019  
Well captured. Was it done "live" or in editing? I suspect the former.
