Made on a poodlewalk with Kayla inbetween the stormy winter conditions-namely, rain, gusty cold  winds and high tides  

This is an image that could look okay  re-photographed with  5x4  b+w film sheet film.

The abstraction  below was made early one morning whilst I walking amongst the coastal rocks with Kayla.    The bitterly cold winds had dropped, the seas  had become  much calmer, and the broken cloud cover  promised some early morning sunshine. It was a good morning for walking along the coast.  

These moments inbetween the storm conditions of winter allowed Kayla and myself  to  leisurely wander amongst the rocks on an early morning poodlewalk.

This abstraction was made on a recent poodlewalk between the king tides in  mid-winter:

I was attracted by the subtle tonality of the granite rocks. I  had to to lay on my stomach  on the wet ground  to get the shape I wanted.

Made on  an early morning poodlewalk: 

It was made whilst I was on  my way to a 5x4 photo session further west along  the coast prior to going to the Lake Boga photo camp  for the Mallee Routes project.

When I was at American River on Kangaroo Island  recently for a brief holiday I revisited Pennington Bay to make some abstractions of the sandstone cliffs. This is one of a number that I made:  

The photo session  was in the late afternoon and it incorporated a poodlewalk as I  had the 2 standard poodles with me.

This  abstraction was made on a morning poodlewalk with Kayla along the coastal rocks between  Petrel Cove and  Kings Beach in Waitpinga: 

 It was  made handheld with a digital camera (a Sony a7R 111) in the low light of the early morning. Convenience is a key as this this  is one of those locations  where it would be very difficult  to use a film camera on a tripod.

This picture was made with the newly acquired  Sony A7r111 digital camera  whilst I was on a poodlewalk to the foot of the Newland Heads in Waitpinga:

These little salt ponds are very ephemeral. They are there one day, gone the next.

This abstract was made at Kings Head,  Waitpinga whilst on an afternoon poodlewalk. 

It is basically a scoping study for a b+w film shoot.

Another recent attempt at a sea abstract: 

I am finding making these kind of sea abstractions  a bit hit and miss as the sea is constantly changing  its shape. The waves move very quickly as well.

Made from the bark of eucalyptus trees in the reserve across the road from the studio: 

It is in a similar location to this previous  bark abstraction image.

This picture was made whilst I was on a recent  poodlewalk with Maleko along the coast rocks near Kings Beach Rd. It was towards the end of the walk and I was in a hurry. 

 It was in the late afternoon. The weather was changing. A sou-westerly wind had up, the clouds became darker, the light lessened,  and I could sense rain. So we quickly made our way back to the Subaru Forester, that was parked at the bottom of Kings Beach Rd.

This abstraction of the bark of a eucalyptus tree was made whilst we were on the way to the beach at Encounter Bay in Victor Harbor:  

The bark is in the reserve opposite Encounter Studio. We have planted most of the trees in the reserve over the years.

It is  amongst series of rocks that mark the end of Dep's Beach.

Made on an early morning  poodlewalk with Kayla:

It was low tide so access to these distorted granite rock forms  was possible.

A scoping study made on a poodlewalk with Maleko:

The next step is film camera--Linhof Technika 70--- a tripod and Kodak Portra film.

This was made near Petrel Cove  whilst on a poodlewalk. 

The location was near these images and next to this one.

This picture is from another go in this experimental series:

It is from a different location along the coast than the location for the earlier sea abstract.  It is  much safer from the  force of the frequent rogue waves.

This abstraction was made on a recent poodlewalk along the coast of the southern Fleurieu Peninsula, just  west of Dep's Beach 

I was scoping for a film shoot. This one is accessible at low tide  and I am able to  use a tripod.

This was made on a poodlewalk  yesterday with Heather Petty, and Kayla and Maleko:

Heather, who is a Nikon DSLR photographer,  had a  new Sony premium compact camera with her,  which she was trying out before  she started to use it for her underwater  photography.  It was a Sony Cyber-shot DSC RX100V --with a fixed lens I think. It is compact in the sense that Heather could put the camera in her  pocket.  

The Sony DSC RX100V's   point and shoot characteristic makes it ideal for underwater photography.

Experimenting:

But I'm not sure at this stage. 

The sea is the darker side of the coastal environment.  It is dangerous. So the images need to be darker.

Another abstraction made just before the early spring storms:

The rock  is granite and the location near Petrel Cove is difficult to get to and dangerous because of the surging waves.

I  scoped this just before the stormy weather from the south west swept in: 

I tried to get back to the site  for most of the week,  but the high tide,  and the large wave surges prevented access. It was too dangerous.  I finally managed to reshoot it with a  medium format camera this morning.

Maybe a 5x4 reshoot in black and white next?

This was made on one of the last poodle walks with Ari along Jetty Rd,  which runs along the side of Rosetta Head to a jetty at the northern foot of Rosetta Head.

It was raining at the time  and I have been meaning to returning to reshoot it with my film cameras. But there has been no rain since.

A late afternoon storm 

We got back to the car just before the rain came in.

 One stormy morning along the coast:

The seas were very rough.
