Photograph 9 - The Stairway Down to the Beach


6000 x 4000 pixels, digital photograph.

These cliffs, that stand above a wave-cut platform, are made of buckled, layered rocks that geologists have found to have formed around 600 million years ago. They stand in the Hallett Cove Conservation Park, a fascinating and inspiring place to visit and walk around in. It contains many ancient geological structures, and yet every square millimetre of surface is part of the immediate moment.

The wooden stairway winds its way down over the curved form of the buckled cliffs from the boardwalk that goes along the tops of the cliffs, to the wave-cut platform and the beach below.

The orange colouring on the rocks is a lichen that grows on the rocks.

The curved surface of the ancient buckled rock.

 

 

 

 

 

Detail 3:



There are interesting plants growing in the crevices of the rocks. There are interesting patterns in the way that the rocks are breaking down.

 

 

 

 

Detail 4:


Some of the jagged rocks look like plates running down the backs of dinosaurs.

Photograph 10 - The Dead Pigeon and Fallen Leaves


6000 x 4000 pixels, digital photograph.

I came upon this little scene as I walked up one of our local streets. The dead bird and dry leaves were piled up on the road, in the gutter. The dead bird looks like it is made of just dry matter that is slowly breaking down, similar to the fallen leaves. The colours captured by the photograph are realistic, and subtle.

I am surprised by the length of the bird's toes and black claws.

Excellent sunlit colours.
