Driftwood – almost drift camera!
Once I arrived at this spot on the beach, I thought what a great shot this would make. Getting there though was a challenge though. With everyone else camped around the pool on yet another hot day in Rhodes I decided to take the camera for a walk along with the rest of the kit to see what I could find. I headed for the one beach we had not explored & unfortunately was disappointed. Apart from the inevitable water there was zero beach to shoot from & looking back was purely cliff & having walked all the way down the hill & by now getting over heated I decided a paddle was in order over to the next beach.
It looked shallow & flat from where I was stood so I set off with kit well above the water & got over 3/4 of the way through. It was at this point that the walk became a little more interesting. My smooth sand became rocks & my paddle became almost a swim as the water got so deep. With a Canon 5D & a few lenses now well above the head, I promptly fell over. Thankfully both camera & lens were still a couple of inches above the water so I decided to head for the cliff which was starting to reduce in size & here I found my shot. It was the only shot for my walk. I was too darned worn out after that for anymore.
