Not just a pretty picture

Often, when taking a photograph, we are consciously or unconsciously trying to capture more than just a visual image. We are attempting to capture an experience that impacts on two, three or even four of our senses  –  not just the visual.  Consider, for example, the two images below and in each instance allow yourself to be there at the scene of the breaking waves  –  experience the force of the sea, hear the sound, taste the salt spray.

Or, enjoy the relaxing warmth of paddling through the shallow pools left by the ebbing tide on a warm summer’s day
