finding my muse

Lens-Artist Photo Challenge #181 | Double Dipping It’s been an awfully long time since I visited my favourite beach – lockdowns, summer tourists, illness, tide times and weather conspired against me during 2021 – but on a relatively warm day of sun and cloud last week combining with a low tide, I finally got to…

And now the year is over…
