I was photographing water flows at Maroubra beach, NSW, while I was waiting for a person to come.
This beach is a rare spot to visit once in a while so it was a fun photography time for me.
This shot was taken near Mahon pool, the rock pool located north side of Maroubra beach. First I would have stopped by and just photographed some shots of seashore, however, I was completely fascinated by water flows, waves rolled in, breaking…. Gosh, my addict to watching flow of water stuck me at the spot pushing me to keep releasing shutter for taking many shots. 🙂
The top image is my submission to this wee Leanne Cole’s ‘Monochrome Madness’ for this week. She opens her space for other photographers’ monochrome works every Thursday. Please stop by to check or participate in for coming week. Details are on her page.
I haven’t touched any drawing tools after my last pastel workshop held on 17th of December and I just wanted to draw something, just something. 🙂
This was drawn ad-hoc, that I did not have any idea when started drawing. This is the simply how it ended. I seem want to draw something about a cold winter and a warm and bright spring season followed by. Here where I am living at moment is in the middle of summer season but I have friends who are in northern hemisphere too, and many of which are covered with snow at moment. They miss and wish the warm and bright spring season to come already.
Tone of this image is a little plain, but I think I managed to express about winter that is gradually moving away and spring season that is coming to closer to you.
Anyway, my first work of 2018 is done, I feel so good. 🙂
Here are my 2017 favourites; the photos caught sunrise at Byron Bay Lighthouse in September. I missed to catch but saw silhouette of whales and dolphins up and down on the ocean that took morning sunlight. It’s like they were dancing.
I took many photographs this year and I really like some of them, but eventually I could not get other photos beaten these.
I would like to share a couple of more photographs out of decent amount that I took at Fujiyoshida Sengen Jinja shrine (富士吉田浅間神社), which I mentioned in my previous blog with a photo (here).
It was a cold morning in early spring season and base areas of Mt. Fuji remained snow unmelted on the roadside.
The photos were caught the path of main (front?) approach of the shrine from the big arch to enter. I looked back toward the arch and caught the scene at the middle of the path to the shrine behind me. Number of lanterns aligned on both side of the path wore green cap of moss, which made good contrast of reserved lanterns in colours yet made beautiful harmony with trees behind them.
It was a cold morning in early spring season but the crisp air shook me in the head and gave me a pleasant morning at the shrine to give my greeting to the god.
