The Ebb And Flow Of Life - Poem by Edwina Reizer

The ebb and flow of the deep blue sea
is the same as it is for you and me.

Sometimes we're at peace with tranquility.
When life seems to move and lets us be
soothed by the rhythms that keeps us quiet
giving what we need to beautify it.

Sometimes we're turbulent as the stormy sea
wondering how troublesome times can be
upon us so fast, destroying harmony.
And nothing we do keeps us free
as we rock back and forth and to and fro
like strong winds from the north that won't let go.

And finally we learn to accept the change
of the ebb and flow and we rearrange
our thinking and the drift and debris
that comes to us like the sand at the sea.
For this is the natural order of things
that comes to all be they paupers or Kings.

By Edwina Reizer

This morning, I was up with the lark. Sunrise at this time of year is before 6am and in order to be in position for when the soft light appears, you really need to be arriving on location no later than 5.30am. So I found myself, at this ungodly hour, standing on the edge of the sea with nothing for company but the sound of waking waves. The tide was coming in and as I positioned my tripod right by the edge of the sea, I kept one eye on the light and one fixed firmly on the ever-nearing tide.

I wanted to get something low down, giving the images a sense of power and of the sheer size of the bay. Another benefit of positioning your camera low to the ground is that you make the foreground that little more apparent. No one normally looks at what is right before the camera, preferring to let their eye be guided into the frame and led towards the point of focus. But when the camera is positioned low, these little stones become a little more obvious. That was what I wanted, a contrast between the sea and the stone, a wave/particle duality if you will.

I also decided to shoot most of my stuff today in long exposure. For me, long exposure is great at isolating that which doesn't move. The fact that everything moving is given a softness, everything that doesn't, by comparison, is given a stronger appearance. This leads to an overall contrast boost and gives static edges a little more grandeur.

I spent a good two hours at Durdle Door this morning, and apart from another pair of photographers and their little dog, I saw no one all morning. Photography is a lonely passion, it is supposed to be. It is a path best trod in solitude.
