Homer, Alaska… Recent macro photography

I wanted to share my favorite place to just wander with my camera and macro lens….the beach on the Homer Spit! I just walked the beach looking for treasures and listening to the waves crash ashore. I grew up in and around Homer. I miss the ocean and miss the windy, salty air. Some of my favorite childhood memories include the muddy beaches of the Kenai Peninsula so these images are special to me. I love the simple beauty, color palate and worn texture found in these images. Here are a few from our trip to the Homer Spit. I have 100’s to go through but these were some of my personal favorites…

    What a great collection of Macro images. I’m just loving that they are all in the same tones, blending together so nicely. They are just stunning! Nice work.

    The starfish is my favorite, but they all make me want to run out and buy a macro lens. Love the details.

    The top right image- is that a jelly fish? This is my favorite. Thanks for sharing the beauty from such a lovely place!
