This image of quartz and seaweed is in the littoral zone of the southern coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. This is where I now live, and the coast is a part of my dally walks in all kinds of weather. I always take a camera with me on these walks.
The image is a handheld macro photo made whilst I was on an early morning poodlewalk with Kayla. The picture was made just before I went on the Wentworth photocamp for the Mallee Routes project, and it was before the autumn rains came and the weather turned cold.
Most of the subject matter along this coast is in the detail rather the broad or panoramic landscape or seascape views. From what I can see the latter is what most of the photographers visiting the coast tend to concentrate on. I had been frustrated in the past because I didn't have equipment to do this kind of close-up work whilst on the daily walks. I had a tripod and a medium format film camera and it was cumbersome to carry, and difficult to use. So much of the detail is situated in difficult spots that make the use of a tripod impractical. So I used the iPhone.
