Fewer Photos ?

No, that's not a New Year's resolution or goal.

 

But when we spend a day at the ocean, we don't take the camera to the beach.

 

But hubby pulled out his phone and took these from the boardwalk.

It was in the mid 60s with some wind yesterday, so it was a cool blustery day. But a day at the beach is always a great day!

 

I cheated and walked back and got our old Nikon 300 out of the car for this one. (no editing on any of these, it really was that beautiful!)

Our day was spent at Canaveral National Seashore.

Do you use your phone to take pics?

I just recently got an iPhone so taking photos with it is not something I am used too. I do realize I enjoy the world a little better when I am actually looking at it with out the camera!

Diane, I know that on 60 degree days with wind off the ocean...that is brisk....and chilly. I am so glad that you and your husband enjoy your hikes and walks together. it's a wonderful shared time being out in nature. You'll both be healthier for it. Blessings to you both, xoxo,Susie

Hi Miss Lavender Dreams,

Tis a mild morning (19*) compared to yesterday at 13*. Bee-u-tee-ful pictures. I asked Mom if she missed living close to the water and she said no. Wow, ever since she was a little girl she loved seeing the ocean. She says she'll take a good, rip, roarin' snowstorm over a day at the beach. Well, I guess we know what her opinion is! Yikes. Maybe she just needs another cup of coffee, or NOT!

Heaps of Hugs

Oh, the camera question - no she takes the camera - she has a little digital for the car.

I don't use my phone to take pics because I don't have a cell phone! LOL! I've tried using my landline but it won't do it...Ha! Ha! Yes, who isn't mesmerized by the ocean?

Diane said...

I'm with Sam-- no cell phone! My hubby uses his for pics, however. Love your photos!

Happy New Year Diane. Oh how I love and miss the beach! I know you had fun there. Thanks for sharing the photo. Enjoy your day and the rest of the week. Julie

Arlene Grimm said...

Any day at the beach is a good one!!

Vee said...

I so rarely think that I always have a camera with me. Glad that your hubby remembered. These photos are beautiful and the shadows are wonderful.

cucki said...

I so much wanted to visit a beach..
It's beautiful xx

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh, I would love to experience that first hand. What beautiful beaches and sky! I do take photos with my phone, but don't like them nearly as much. The bison on my blog today was taken with my phone because my camera was at home. My phone photos lack the definition I get with my real camera. Hope you have many wonderful adventures in 2016. xo

Stephanie said...

Oh yes, a day at the beach is always a good day {{smiles}} I grew up on Lake Huron in Canada and I must say that even now I miss the water and sand.

Your pictures look lovely and I am amazed that your husband's phone took them. I must confess that I don't use my phone because I don't have one...shocking, I know :)

It's so good to visit you, sweet friend. Love and hugs!

Primitive Stars said...

Morning, looks so lovely, will be a long time till I can be at the beach...Blessings Francine.

Jill said...

Beautiful pics!

I take nearly all my pictures with my phone now, even though I have a lovely Canon camera - it's easy to carry and the pictures are always great!

Gorgeous.
Every time I go to pick up my husband's special blend of coffee, I think of you, as I pass the American Girl store. xoxo Su

Alex said...

wonderful pictures of a heavenly beach! Here in the East of the UK our seas are grey and sandy, and the wind is freeeeeezing...it was such a treat to see all the blue.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

So pretty. I miss the beach so much. I do use my phone for photos when I don't have my camera handy!
hugs,
Linda

Hi, Diane. I do you my phone to take pics, but they are temporary. These are lovely photos and so nice to hear you had a splendid day.

Wishing you a very happy, healthy, and prosper new year.

Blessings,

Beautiful photos! Considering I always have my phone with me I am constantly forgetting that it has a camera!! Have a wonderful day!

Dorothy Crutchfield said...

I use my phone because its so easy to download straight to facebook. Love your beach pictures and also, your header pic is so cute!!

Debby Ray said...

Just gorgeous! Love the last one especially with your shadows :)

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

Love the shadow photo. I don't use my phone as much as I should. I've also got a camera and video on the iPad but don't think to take that out with me. Such a lovely day on the beach, I'm envious.

Red Rose Alley said...

The ocean is so beautiful. I got a chance to see it when I went to Jess' house for Thanksgiving. These pics that were taken on your husband's phone are very nice. And the last one with your shadows is cool.

Dear Diane
They're all wonderful shots and make me want to jump in the car and visit our waterfront!
How's that for inspiration?!
Your last photo of the shadows is a beauty.
Thank you for your kind words and I wish you all good things in the year ahead my dear Florida friend!
Love

Gina said...

Diane, the ocean is such a lovely color. Almost a bluish turquoise!

Congratulations - you are the Welcome Winter Cottage Giveaway. I believe I still have your address. I will check and mail your treasure asap! :-)

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Lovely photos - and what a grand day at the beach. That temperature would be summer for us. Love the shadow shot - so clever.

I rarely use my phone for photos - I haven't taken the time to learn to use it properly but my son tells me it takes fantastic pictures. I always take my camera - even to the beach - usually at least two cameras. The worst time I had at a beach was at a lake in the middle of Washington - it was a clear sunny day but the wind was blowing so hard we could almost not stand up. The wind began whipping the sand up off the beach - so back to the car to protect the camera from sand - but first I did get a couple great photos. There is something about the light on a bright, windy day. Enjoy your week my friend.

Lorrie said...

What a gorgeous blue ocean! I occasionally take photos with my phone, but rarely keep them. Still, it's handy to have it when I don't have my camera with me. Walking on the beach is such a great thing to do!

helen tilston said...

Diane hello and a very Happy New Year. These images are fabulous and in particular he one taken with your Nikon camera. I have not had much success with my iPhone and still carry my Canon camera.
Wishing you lots of adventures
Helen xx

Carla from The River said...

I love your new 2016 Hike photo. 2 already!! Good for you. :-))

I love, love, love the photos today. Thank You!! Need that sun here, I get my vitamin D from you.

Maggid said...

Looks Awesome!!! Nope, I don't even have one of those fancy, picture taking phones . . . I'm glad you do . .

Pam~ Virginia Retro said...

Gorgeous photos! I do miss those beautiful Florida beaches, especially in the cool weather when you can enjoy the beach all by yourselves. Heaven!

ann said...

Looks Beachy to me. I am glad that you are enjoying the sun and sand. Yes. I do use my phone camera. It is a good camera and so easy to use.

cynthia lee designs said...

Love the picture of the beach!! Yes....I take pictures with my phone all the time and it seems to have a really good camera. We are going to take hikes this year, but we have to wait until after winter...just to cold here right now.
hugs,
Cindy

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Gorgeous photos, Diane. I can almost imagine that I'm there...wish I were as it's getting chilly here. I haven't mastered my iPhone6 yet as far as getting good photos. Part of it is that I can't seem to hold it still enough. Take care!

Sally said...

Nice photo's, Diane, and yes any day at the beach is a good day! :)

I have been using my phone the past year or so instead of the camera.

Been windy here also in NE FL - I think winter has arrived. :)

Dayle ~ A Collection of Days said...

Yes, any day at the beach is a good one.

Lovely!
