quartz, lichen + granite

This abstraction  was a difficult image to make.  I had to wait until the late afternoon  for the light, and he quartz  was tucked behind some  granite rocks on the foreshore just east of Deps Beach and  it was not possible to put my body in the space between the granite and the quartz to obtain a low view:

So I had to lean into the space, try and balance my feet on some sharp edges and hold the Sony NEX-7 camera low. Thankfully the camera has a  fold out back  and so I could focus the image using it. 

Quartz Abstract #2

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.
