On the beach at Glenelg. I’ve heightened the colours of the rock to bring them out. Stunning.
I suppose this is less a photograph and more of a created image. The purist side of me tends to squirm when a photograph is pushed this far so as to make the image so much less a likeness of the object. I’ll just have to learn to let my artist side shove the purist out the way.
For the remainder of our stay in Adelaide, Maggie and I rented an apartment in Glenelg, just back from Moseley Square. Last couple of times we’d been there our favourite perch had been the Starbucks in Moseley Square, where we could sit and look out over the square and the sea. As with most of the rest of Australia, Starbucks had disappeared, but another really nice cafe had just opened in the same place, so we got to enjoy the same view with even better coffee.
Another use of the coloured grad filter, adding a little more blue to the sky.
Part of the town every kid knows, the local pool is a netted off area of the sea, adjacent to the jetty.
and a wider view from further up the jetty.
In the background is the preserved, last remaining chimney from the old smelting stacks, square shaped in the Cornish tradition. And I just found this shot from the old days:
Even in this shot, the big Hughes Stack stands out. Click on the image to be taken to the SA Memory page describing the photograph and giving information about the smelting era.
Held the camera down very low to this rock pool and shot along the water. The rocks are about eighteen inches high.
I made the usual corrections to enhance the picture but also dragged a graduated filter with lowered exposure down from the top right corner to the middle of the shot.
Have I mentioned that I like shooting rock pools?
