Do you remember the original Endless Summer Surfer Film from 1966? Here is the famous poster image from the original Endless Summer. While I was photographing this image I wasn’t looking to recreate the image from the Endless Summer Film. Once I started editing, I fell in love with this image. Sunsets, barefoot at the bay, silhouettes dancing in the last rays of light, ahhh, summers on Cape Cod!
This photo was created late summer at Point of Rocks Beach on Cape Cod Bay. The low tide changes daily over the bay so you never know what you will find! Thanks to Snowflake Bentley and all his research and microscopic work we now know that no two snowflakes are identical. Every snowflake is unique. That’s what is so much fun about sunsets. No two sunsets are identical. Some may look alike, but no two are ever identical! I love having the photos as memories and a way to share the beauty of mother nature, but ultimately it is the experience of feeling the power and beauty of each sunset.
The silhouettes in this photo were running along the tidal flats from the shadows to the suns long casting rays! It took a few exposures and a lot of swarming by the no see-ums, however, I remained until I had a photo that captured the few moments of Endless Summer on Cape Cod Bay! And for anyone wondering the answer, yes, I almost gave up after being attacked by the bugs! Patience is a virtue when trying to make that extra special image.
