Coloured rocks and pebbles, Gillespies Beach, Westland NP, South Island, New Zealand. Canon EOS1DMKII, 90mm TSE tilted, f16, 1/8 sec, tripod, mlu, cable, polariser. Normal PSE stuff, plus toned down the reflection on top of the yellow rock. I was waiting for sunset and started to spot the occasional yellow stone among the mainly grey toned beach. They seemed to be somehow out of place here, but provided an interesting element to the design. I now find these images some of my favourites from my NZ trip and have had some printed. The sunset didn't really inspire that evening, and I wish I'd found a composition like this and waited for it to be lit by the fading light instead. The top area crops down by 2 inches from a 12x8 nicely to 10 inches, just removing the upper solitary grey pebble leaving the trio underneath.
