A Nauset Wave

A Nauset Wave is a Nauset Wave is a Nauset Wave…..or so a famous poet might have said had she seen the waves at Nauset Beach on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Something about the slope of the beach and the amount of sand carried in the waves gives a distinctive color to the water as it crests, hovering between green and sandy brown, with bits of seaweed floating about. I loved the delicate tones in the wave and nuanced movement of foam left high and almost dry in the foreground. Usually a wave just quietly does what it does, and we are left to enjoy it or not. Enjoy!
