The few beaches that I have been to have been pretty, but not much from a photographic standpoint, at least where foreground is concerned. I’ve seen photos of huge bolders off the beach with waves crashing on them or maybe old ships beached that were used in the foreground. About the best that I’ve run across has been a small boat or two or something like this old stump. I wonder if you can buy an inflatable bolder? Just blow it up and throw it out into the waves. Presto. Instant, awesome foreground. I’m running to the patent office tomorrow.
