On perhaps the coldest evening of the year, I met Elizabeth and her family on Sunset Beach on Treasure Island for a family beach portrait session. Not only was it cold, but it was also very windy with clouds of sand at times sweeping down the shoreline. However, her family was great and braved the cold. As for me, I was fine . . . inside my windproof Mountain Hard Wear jacket!
You can see the sand at their feet blowing in the wind. I never experienced that before on Sunset Beach or any other Pinellas County beach. I thought though it made for a cool photo effect shooting with a long focal length.
Though it was frigid and windy, at least Mother Nature also provided a great sunset as a backdrop to our family beach portrait session.
