Monochrome Madness is the community space she opens for other photographers and audiences who love monochrome / black and white photos. Here gives me a great opportunity and challenges about monochrome images. As it is open community, everyone can participate.
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.
These photos were taken at Byron Bay when I went for my birthday trip. It was really short trip but I had really great time entirely.
Anyway, I like these photos because of the slight yet continuous background changes happened behind the lone seagull on the solid rock. I also like form of a series of waves I captured. I usually love watching waves at any seashore and I can watch them for hours, zero boredom. So I had had so many difficulties at Byron, to make myself move from a number of beautiful nature scenes there. Ocean waves were absolutely one of them.
