WE ARE NOT IN THE MALDIVES

NERJA by KRISS on 26 june 2016

When it comes to comparing water clarity around the globe, most divers will agree to say that the Maldives or the indian ocean in general offers the most fantastic waters on the globe.
Nerja in south of Spain on the other hand doesn’t ! The many currents from the Atlantic move the waters a lot, the sand at the bottom, algae, anything, and water gets very quickly murky.
Then it takes generally a few days to settle and at the end, if you are lucky you get half a day of clear water before :

a) some new winds start blowing and the sea gets some surf.
b) weaker currents bring slick from the raw sewage onto the beaches.

In case a) at least I get to enjoy playing in the waves.

Both cases I am not doing anything underwater and that gets frustrating after a few months waiting days after days for the right time to shoot.
So far this month of June gave me 4 opportunities to work and not the 4 days were perfectly crystal clear.
I do hope my memory serves me right as I seem to recall Nerja with turquoise waters pretty much every day last year but it might happen later through the season.

For now, I will try to bring fun photography to people some other way, either at the beach or covering volleyball matches or finding swimming pools, or just shooting for myself !

The humbling experience of walking up to people to offer them a free service is an experience that is giving me plenty to think about.
At least if I don’t shoot as much as I wish, I get to learn on other levels and I am getting a lot richer that way !

Well this doesn’t solve my craving for creating images and at least I have a plan for this week !
