I visited South Andros Island (Bahamas) twice this year: once in winter and once in spring.
Both times the beaches were totally deserted - except for some yappy dogs - and they were in their natural state with plenty of small tidal lagoons and sand spits exposed at low tide. Endless stuff to have fun with.
Here is a shot during ‘magic light’.
“Was this my favourite image ever? No, that’s the one I’m going to take tomorrow”. (Wise words from a Mr. Imogen Cunningham.)
Strongest ingredient: interesting lighting.
