The weather outside is frightful. Freezing rain, sleet and ice pellets with a severe weather warning for most of the Greater Toronto Area. It’s only December and there’s at least three more months of winter ahead.
It’s no surprise that my favorite pictures of the year are those of the beach.
I love the sight of people and kids enjoying the beach. I can’t always get their facial expressions but their body language says enough.
But no one can be joyful all of the time.
The Pacific coast can be moody and changeable. I like this photo as it reminds me so much of my teenage years when I was moody and changeable. The figures seem to embody all the emotional angst of youth – hope, confidence and vulnerability.
The Pacific is not only changeable, it can be dark and foreboding. Pretty much like these young men who seem poised on the cusp of great drama.
These are my favorite photos of the beach and despite (maybe in spite of ) the winter months ahead, I look forward to the beach in 2020.
