Truthfully, I get squirrelly if I'm not close to a body of water. The larger the body of water, the better. While I lived in Newfoundland, I was fortunate to shoot the ocean daily from my home. You can look out over the North Atlantic 365 days a year, and see something different each time. The colour of water changes perceptively with the amount of skylight, wind, temperature, and humidity. Love it!
Apart from capturing images during the "magic hours" of twilight and dusk, when the light wavelengths shorten, and colours seem to change hue and depth -- nighttime and low-light photography is something I enjoy. Whether it is the remnant of natural light, or man-made light, there's always something new to see and capture in a new way.

Because lighthouses are built to withstand powerful storms and turbulent ocean waters, they are frequently depicted as resilient symbols of fortitude, hope, and individuality. Any sea wary ship can be reassured when the glimmering light of a lighthouse comes into view, as it portends the calm waters of a safe harbour.
