Rocks and water - Australian style!!

The tide was coming in so I went down to the beach to see what I could capture around the rocks. These rocks are at the end of the area that was the support of a jetty built and used by Australian and United States military in World War II.

It was getting towards evening, so I used slow shutter speeds. I could tell from some of the images that I was flinching when waves came close!!



The rocks cop a bit of a battering along this stretch of beach.



As shutter speed slowed, the splashes almost looked hairy.



As the water got a bit wild, things looked pretty chaotic!! But I liked this one for the chaos and energy I see in it.



Any comments are welcome, of course! Enjoy!

Sue

Hi Sue, looks like a fun shoot here. I was taking photos of a star fish on a large rock in the Pacific ocean once and ended up in 3' of water...

Re: Rocks and water - Australian style!!

3 foot of water? Wow - I bet you were scrambling to save your gear!! Yes, it was fun! I want to get down there again when we have a bit of a breeze up - maybe a storm. But .... maybe not with my camera?! Sue

Re: Rocks and water - Australian style!!

Ha - yes, Jim ... just a bit concerned about a wet camera! But I want to experiment at different times of day, and different conditions, too. But I do love the wilder weather on the coast, so will end up down there with camera in hand!! Sue

Re: Rocks and water - Australian style!!

It looks like you were really in amongst the action Sue! I like the hairy look of the slow shutter speed I'd suggest brightening up the shots with a bit of levels adjustment, and perhaps sharpening them, e.g.:



I hope you don't mind that I've tinkered (albeit very quickly) with one of your shots. When people here were first talking to me about levels, I found it useful when they showed me what they meant, with one of my photos (so I could compare).

It's nice to see a fellow Australian posting

Re: Rocks and water - Australian style!!

Hi Melanie, no, that's quite OK. I agree that it can be easier to see what someone means if you show them. And I do see what you mean, too, thanks. It brings out the colours and patterns in the spray of water. Yes - I think we are outnumbered!! Thanks again,
Sue

Re: Rocks and water - Australian style!!

Nice captures Sue.
I don't know who's post it was but they were saying something about putting cameras in ziplocks to protect from the rain...maybe you can try that for the storm!
