In early May 2010, Frank and I travelled to Long Point Provincial Park to explore the wide, long beach, devoid of beach goers and sand flies. The grasses were a dull brown-yellow colour, blending in with the sand. A brisk wind kept us bundled up and our visit to a short time. I took several photos that day in colour, but when it came to post-processing them, black and white seemed the best way to amplify the chilly mood.
This photo was of one lonely tree on a small hill that’s part of the dunes around the area. It stood like a sentinel over the barren beach.
Tip: Visiting here in early May requires good hiking boots and a warm jacket. Sunscreen is a must on a sunny day – don’t let the chilly air fool you, as you can certainly get a sunburn.
