As we say a sad goodbye to the summer of 2011 and welcome the fall, we thought it would be a good time to look back on the sunny season with a collection of iPhone photographs.
More specifically, beach pics galore. We’ve assembled a gallery of 25 fabulous photos snapped at the seashore by some of our favorite iPhotographers — and by some fresh new faces too. In addition to iPhone photos, we’ve also included a handful of pics processed with iPhone apps — a growing trend.
SUBMIT YOUR FALL-THEMED IPHONE PHOTOS BELOW FOR MASHABLE’S NEXT GALLERY!
Take a look through the photo gallery below for our best-of beach imagery. To celebrate fall we’re looking for your autumnal iPhone photos for our next compilation. Submit your images for consideration in the comments section below.
This dreamy photo was shot in Corolla, North Carolina, otherwise known as "The Outer Banks."
"The poles in the sand mark the end of Route 12 at the north end of the Outer Banks; as well as acting as a barrier to keep the wild horses on the other side," explains Jim Darling. "Beyond this point, it's '4-wheel drive access only'."
We're in Japan for this next pic -- at Hayama Beach, about an hour south of Tokyo.
"I chose this rough-edged film to give the sunset a raw, physical look," explains Lance Shields. "The Hipstamatic app over-saturated what was already a very intense late colorful sunset. I was surprised by the colors and gravity of the light."
This is an image from the @FtLauderdaleSun iPhotography project. Andy Royston snaps a photo at sunrise every morning, then processes and uploads it to Twitter from the beach. There's a ton of great shots to enjoy, but these seagulls lit by a sun flare caught our eye.
"This was taken in May in Monterey, California, a few yards away from the Pacific Ocean. It was a hotel's boardwalk desk, late in the afternoon, and I loved the textures of the chairs against the wood below, and the shadows cast by the angle of the sun completed the composition," says Ted Anthony.
"It implies the water without actually showing it, and the clean, hard lines are a contrast to the undulating waves you're thinking about that are just a few more feet west."
