I'm one of those weirdos who really likes how empty the beach is in the off seasons. It's just as beautiful, but so much more peaceful. (For the most part) I don't have to worry about people staring at me and my tripod, I can take all the time I want. No worries about finding parking or being in the way of someones picnic.
Even though I wont venture on to the sand with my tripod anymore, and the sun was a bit harsh for taking shots outside of the more shaded areas, I still love heading to the beach for my outfit photos this time of year.
Not to mention the weather was quite lovely for November, I could have easily been tricked into thinking it was actually mid September. (If only, 40 days until Christmas - -what?)
