Wednesday Walk West Island Beach

Wednesday Walk West Island Beach

This post if for Wednesday walk challenge And Make me Smile Collaboration challenge, initially our collaboration was once a month but due to the popularity of it we have decided to make the collab a weekly thing :)

Wednesday Walk is a challenge started by me, the idea is to get out for a short walk and get some shots of what you can see within a short distance of your home office or wherever you start. And this is my entry for this week, but first, let me explain the challenge.

This is my post for the Wednesday Walk challenge hosted by myself, let me first explain the guidelines

Try and get out once a week for a short walk, can be from your office, home or anywhere really and walk for a few blocks or a few minutes looking for things to get shots of.

Your walk does not have to be on a Wednesday I just ask if possible to share your walk photos on a Wednesday.

Try and get a few shots not just one

Add a bit of a write up about where you walked

You can look for anything in general or decide on one subject you want to get shots off.

Make a point of looking around and up and see what you can find to get shots of that otherwise you may miss

Do a post with the shots you get on a Wednesday and tag it with #wednesdaywalk, also if you happen to join, please leave a link to your post in a comment on this post and I will try and visit them all, especially if its not one of the first 5 tags or I may miss seeing it .

Following me and re-Hiving the post so more see it would be appreciated but isn't a rule just a suggestion.

I am not strict on these rules and hence why they are called guidelines and not rules

I will try and visit, and upvote all who take part in the Wednesday Walk.

for this weeks walk I will share some shots from an Early morning visit to West Island Beach in Fairhaven recently

That morning I did get to see a lovely sunrise which I shared in this post but for this post I will share some shots of the start of the walk from the carpark, which was easier than the long walk along the wet sand on the beach

The first thing I noticed when I pulled up into the car park was this tower and will start and finish this post with a shot of it.

its a World War II lookout and fire tower from 1941

Now I say it was the first thing I saw when I got there, but these photos were all taken on the way back from the beach and back to the car park, I probably should have used my tripod for these shots and been able to shoot at a lower ISO, but after the long walk on the wet sandmy legs were aching and basically I was to tired or lazy to set the tripod up again

This is the path from the car park out to the beach

As you walk out to the beach you can look back and see the Fire Tower Standing out over the greenery
