Castle Rock Patterns (5X2BW3535)
Early morning long exposure showing patterns in the sand at Castle Rock Beach, near Dunsborough, South West, Western Australia.
Castle Rock Beach is a popular swimming and fishing beach near Dunsborough in Western Australia’s beautiful South West. It’s also a very heavily photographed place perhaps due to its proximity to Dunsborough. The beach gets its name from the rock structure at the eastern end, which resembles a castle with a little imagination.
You can just see it in this image at the end of the distant point, however from this angle it doesn’t really live up to its namesake. My intention wasn’t to focus of the heavily photographed hero, but instead capture the seascape in general at sunrise, highlighting the interesting patterns in the sand left by the receding tide and previous wave action. For me, colour would have distracted from the image, so it was converted to black and white.
Titled “Castle Rock Patterns” to highlight the images focus.
