Wyadup Forms (1X1BW2458)
Moody black and white portrayal of Wyadup Rock formations near Yallingup, South West, Western Australia.
This is a dark and moody portrayal of Wyadup Rocks, south of Yallingup in the South West of Western Australia. Captured in the late afternoon as the sun set and the shadows across the rocks increased.
A long exposure used to flatten the water and illustrate its movement around the rocks in the foreground. Leading lines from the foreground boulders towards the centre of the frame. The use of black and white to enhance the emotion and showcase the structure of the rock forms which provide the visual interest against the clear sky.
Purposely intended to be opposite in representation compared to the colourful “Wyadup Moss” and “Wyadup Rocks Sunset” images. Its intent to convey that depressive dark feelings may be present even when the surroundings can be colourful and cheery otherwise. Symbolic of someone who appears to have it all, yet is still finds a reason to be depressed.
Titled “Wyadup Forms” to reflect the structure and form of the rocks that make up the Wyadup Rocks location.
Wyadup Rocks are located just south of Canal Rocks and north of Injidup Beach in the South West of Western Australia. A popular fishing and tourist location that like most of the South West locations is heavily photographed. It is also the home of the famous Injidup Natural Spa, where water from the ocean breaks over the outer rocks and cascades down into a protected rock pool. Popular with both tourists and locals in the summer months.
The rocks themselves are exposed to the full force of the Southern Indian Ocean. Whilst relatively safe on calmer days, they can be extremely dangerous when the swell is running and large waves pound the rocks sending spray high into the air.
