Rain lines on the horizon, Eagle Bay, Dunsborough, South West, Western Australia.
Taken at the same time as “Cloudy Haze”, this square format composition focuses on rocky section on the beach at Eagle Bay, whilst still highlighting the rain haze or sun rays (not sure on which) coming from blow the clouds in the back ground. A piece of driftwood combined with some interesting lines in the sand provides some additional interest and lead you to the centre of the frame.
In line with my love for black and white, I chose this to present the image as I felt it enhanced all the elements and revealed the structure and texture of the scene better than colour.
Titled “Lines” to reflect the lines falling from the clouds, creating a haze and the lines in the sand caused by the previous high tide.
The South West corner of Western Australia has many magical spots, with Eagle Bay, not far from Dunsborough a standout. Which is why I guess in the wooded hinterland behind it lies some of Western Australia’s most expensive holiday houses. The coastline is normally calm with clear water and white sandy beaches, separated by orange coloured rocky outcrops and points. Protected by Cape Naturaliste from the relentless large ocean swells, it is in stark contrast to the other side of the cape, world famous for its large and powerful surf breaks.
