the story behind - from pain comes gain

It was not my intent to take these images that day, nor was the idea of heading to the beach at noon under clear blue skies. Unfortunately fate had thwarted plans for an early morning/later afternoon session as my son had broken his leg just days earlier slipping on a wet rock. However, at the prompting of my wife to take a break from patient care I thought I'd at least scout ideas in the hope of a chance to return before our vacation ended.

As I approached the beach I couldn't believe the conditions; a thick sea fog enveloped the beach with the glow of the sun producing a beautiful ethereal glow on those waiting it out..Foreseeing the fog lifting I rushed the length of the beach capturing what I could, some of which I present above.

So my gain comes from my son's unfortunate accident, but it just goes to prove that we never know what is around the next bend so we best be prepared
