Romantic, colorful and ever-changing beach scenes, beach photos look at us from the pages of tropical resorts magazines, desktop wallpapers and television screens. Taking beach pictures will most likely be part of your routine while vacationing in the Dominican Republic.
Stunning beach photos will remind you of soft sand, a warm ocean and a gentle breeze. Nature photography will help you relax and enjoy your tropical vacation even more.
Most resorts in the Dominican Republic are all-inclusive resorts and a lot of visitors probably feel guilty about eating too much and need to get some exercise before the next meal and go for a walk on the beach.
Join other walkers, joggers or simply strollers. Walking will allow you to find the best location for a landscape picture. Remember that walking on the sand barefoot is challenging, and a good walk would be around a mile one way.
Taking beach photos in early morning offers an excellent opportunity to capture sunrise and later use it as a desktop wallpaper. At sunrise you can catch a glimpse of wildlife, maybe pelicans gliding above or fish jumping.
You can photograph fishermen getting their boats ready. The personnel cleaning up the beach and picking up seaweed is friendly and will give you the right of way, make sure no sand gets on to you and they will happily pose for the image.
The winds around sunrise are light and the ocean is calm. It is essential for beach photography because this will change as the day progresses; the breeze from the east will pick up and die down again at sunset.
If you are lucky to visit during the full moon, you can take pictures of the moon and treat yourself to a magnificent show absolutely for free – watch tropical moonrise. You can check current moon phases online. To get better pictures of the moon, the time of the moonrise has to be just after the sunset.
Then the image will capture the sunset glow in the sky and also the moon. Of course, the direction and time of moonrise and weather conditions have to cooperate with your nature photography schedule. If everything works, you will first see the glow on the horizon and then watch the moon gracefully rise from beneath the ocean.
Moon rising from the ocean is truly an unforgettable and romantic beach scene. Taking this type of beach photo will require patience and the use of a tripod. The pictures in this set were taken at El Cortecito beach, Bavaro, Dominican Republic.
