My Little Secret..

Everyone has their own secrets, some bigger than others. Some personal and sad, some, people don’t want known but others are small beauties held close to the heart of the person who is keeping it – mine is the latter. A secret that I want to share with the world yet I want to keep it all to myself. What you might ask? It’s the ocean. Not the ocean as a whole, but a small part of it that is very close to my heart. It’s the place I first found my love for photography, the place I feel at peace and happy, My secret little beach, no one is ever on it (except for the occasional dog walker) and it is the most peaceful place I know. My little secret.

It is very easy to forget the things that you have around you every day. For example – people who live in hot countries don’t appreciate the sun, people who have big families don’t appreciate the love, for me – I find that I don’t appreciate the one thing that some people have never seen with their own eyes. The beautiful ocean.

Where I live is on the very coast and is a maximum 10 minute walk to the big public beach with a big promenade and views to die for – but for me I have a special little beach that I first discovered a few summers ago. A little walk over the cliff top took me to an area I had never been to before and after climbing and jumping down some rocks i found myself on a little beach that had nobody on it and the views were the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.

I just sat there with my friend throwing rocks into the ocean as our feet were being tickled by the cold icy water (even in the summer) The thing is – that was a few years ago and ever since I haven’t been. So yesterday I took another friend to show her the beauties of the beach and I suddenly realised how much I missed it.

We ran around throwing rocks up as high as we could and as far as we could and I felt like I was walking on clouds – It was total bliss. I found that it was even more beautiful in the winter time as it was in the summer as the cold breeze reddened our noses and we walked along the edge of the beaches the sun was setting behind the cliff. As the sun was setting I took some shots of this beautiful place. It made me realise how the natural beauties of the world are what you need to be doing in your spare time – not wasting time in bed or watching movies. I need to appreciate my beautiful surroundings more often!!

    1. Yes sometimes it is easy to forget what you have! I am so lucky! But also, sometimes cities can be beautiful if you wander down small alleyways and have a look in detail at life! Walking around with a camera seems to help you spot little beauties! Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog!! Beth

  1. Wow… Such beautiful writing. And you’re 16??
    You are right about not appreciating the things we normally have in abundance. As I live near the sea as well and I also live where it’s hot most of the time.

  3. It reminds me of the breakwater which was bordering the perimeter of the fish pond where I grew up. I spent too much time there my father once asked me if I fancy myself a mermaid. Thanks for letting us in your secret place.

  4. Hi Beth, I just checked the post 😉 Beautiful photos, I love the composition on the bottom right one, the way you used the lines – nice job!
    Don’t be afraid to post more of your photographs 😉 Putting your work out there it’s just the perfect way to get feedback and improving your technique! And it’s always nice to have some images to illustrate a text!
