This surreal sunset leans more toward digital art than photography, although it had its origins in a long exposure after a coastal storm. Photography does lend itself to experimentation!
This clever gull chose the best possible place to view the sunset at a cove in Laguna Beach, California.
This image is from the same location on the same late afternoon as my two previous posts. All I had to do was look in the opposite direction and take a few steps. Here the cliffs overlooking a cove in Laguna Beach, California, are standing strong against the force of incoming breakers.
How different from yesterday’s post, and yet this image features the same tidal pool seen a bit later after the fog rolled in. And the gulls had found a new bathing spot.
Aside from the occasional larger-than-normal wave, this clever seagull has found nature’s perfect bird bath. The gull flapped around in the water enjoying a bath, then quickly ascended whenever a large wave came crashing in. This cycle was repeated over and over again.
This is another of the historic lighthouses along the rugged coast of Victoria, Australia, and I believe this image shows just how rugged the coastline is. The photgraph sends a chill up my spine when I look at it, but not for the reason you would think. The spot where I stood to take the shot had been deeply eroded underneath by the the sea and this danger became apparent to me only after I walked away and happened to look back. Yikes, at least I lived to tell the tale!
These stately limestone stacks off the southeastern coast of Australia are constantly changing due to erosion. In fact, even the number of stacks is changing but the iconic name is not. Today, only eight Apostles remain in this famous cluster, but many more stacks stand along the coastline.
