Coastal Cairns

After a restless night in the Jeep, I walked my cranky self down to the beach, bracing against the cold and wet winds, wondering why the hell I decided this would be a good idea. After stumbling over some driftwood piles and nearly falling flat on my face, I made it to the open beach. Walking around with my phone light as the only illumination, I noticed the cairns in the the foreground, but the rest became visible when I began taking photos. Since this is a longer exposure, the light you see was not as apparent and could only be picked up in such a way by the camera. When the image popped up on the screen I was amazed to see just how many cairns there were. I then began to work my way around them, finding a composition that would be pleasing but also highlight the beautiful sculptures.
