Another image from my Stewart Island trip.  At Port William I took a break from the many tasks that filled my day and wandered around awhile with my camera in hand.  Down on the beach I found this lovely little ‘arrangement’. 

I took the image in landscape format, but I like it rotated – it looks like a breaking wave, and of course it was a little wave that created the pattern.  And the various components of the sand have created my silvery sky and dark sea.

  1. for me the whole point of “wandering around with a camera in hand” is to see wonderful gems like this.

    90% of non photographers dont see them

  2. and i agree that the design elemenst work perfectly in this portrait orientation

  3. one of the things that I like about photography is how the camera creates a “zen” window that allows us to pause and solely concentrate on that one thing that is confined to the dimensions of the viewfinder. This image does that for me, I am guilty of simply enjoying all the visual elements and roaming round and round it with nothing more than indulging in the pleasure of what I am seeing. Thanks Vicki.

  4. Gorgeous Vicki! I love the simplicity, the colours and tones and the apparent abstract nature of the picture that suddenly becomes a perfect moment of reality when one looks closer. Thank you for finding this treasure!

  5. I agree with Ian and Pauline ,wandering around with the camera shows use things that we might otherwise not fully appreciate . Interestingly the restriction of the viewfinder and often other restrictions like depth of field or other blurring techniques actually expand our understanding. Very nice image Vicky.
