At the beach

Discussion in 'People' started by Terri French, Aug 7, 2008.

  1. The beach where we hang out and boat from at Redfish Lake is a special place. It can be chilly there so often we have on warm clothes. There were a couple of nights on our trip where it got below freezing. Yikes!!

    It's fun to take candid shots of family members at the beach. The lighting conditions on some of these were horrendous. But, you have to capture the moment!!

    70-200 VR Jaden isn't a baby anymore. He took his first tube ride with his daddy and uncle. The photo isn't the best, but the moment was too special to not capture.

  2. It's all good and fun...Great family and friends...Nice shots:wink:
     
  3. Don't you love it? Freezing at night, wakeboarding/skiing during the day! :biggrin: It's not all about the proper exposure on pictures like these, it's about capturing those family special times like you said.

    Hi Terri,

    Love those family pictures, nice color and back ground.
    If it's freezing at night, that water has got to be real cold,not
    for me and I live here in Fl.

    Phil..........:smile:
     
  11. Fun event for all of your Terri. Love the last shot of Jaden taking the tube ride.
     
  12. Yep, good, fun, family, and friends pretty much sums up the trip every year. Thanks.

    The temperature extremes are crazy. The kids go from winter coats to swimming suits. But, it's great fun. Thanks.

    Yes, those mountains are spectacular. It's wonderful to sit on the beach and look at the mountains.
     
  13. I've been testing out a few lenses that a fellow forum member loaned me. I wanted him to see which lenses I was using. Glad you enjoyed reading which ones I used. Thanks.

    Thanks, Linda. I've only got dozens more to post process so I can make the family slideshow on DVD for everyone.

    Her dog is actually a Schnoodle. But I have a black schnauzer. They are such high energy dogs, I can't imagine six of them.:eek: 
     
  14. Glad you enjoyed seeing our happy times.

    Thanks, I think we are a happy family.....most of the time....

    The water is awful....about 52 degrees. I don't get in it unless I am REALLY hot, which didn't happen this year.

    At the first of the trip, Jaden wouldn't even put his feet in the water. It was a major milestone that he would ride in the tube. Of course, my brother-in-law drove the boat extremely slow.
     
  15. Great shots.....love #4 beautiful background.
     
  16. Those mountains are probably why we keep going to that particular lake year after year. Thanks.
     
  17. oh terri,
    these are awesome
    nothing makes me happier than seeing a great family having fun together
    the beach can be a magic place

    i'm glad you shared these with us
