The stormy weather finally has gone from Victor Harbor. Today started with a glorious spring morning--crisp, clear and still. As there was no early morning cloud cover, so the 8x10 black and white shoot that I had in mind was a nonstarter. I needed soft or diffused early morning light for the shoot.
So I took a walk along the boat ramp near Whalers Inn Resort at sunrise in order to photograph the sea at the edge of breakwater in Encounter Bay. I had some abstractions in mind, which I wanted to explore in the early morning light:
The sea is gentle in this part of Encounter Bay, and so I was able to sit on the rocks at the water's edge without worrying that I'd be swamped by every seventh wave. I didn't have that much time before the sunlight became too bright and the highlights on the white caps of the waves blew out.
