Crystal Cresent Beach

Digital original
A beach walk with a friend provided me it with the chance to make some more contemplative photographs - images made just by seeing, as opposed to hunting for a photograph.
Digital infrared original
Infrared portrays seaweed so differently from how the eye view it that can be transformative when everything comes together, as it did in this composition. It is also an image that makes the most of a tilt-shift lens.
Digital orignal
The best images of the walk, however, were waves pulling back from a seaweed covered rock; I made perhaps two dozen versions of this, learning how the water rendered during the multi-second exposure, and refining the timing. In the end, a couple were really pleasing, but this one had everything I was looking for - including a reason to be in colour.
