This is the western side of the base of Rosetta Head, Victor Harbor and so is a part of Petrel Cove.
We often walked the dogs length base of Rosetta Head until we could get no further. This was late afternoon light.
A detail in the coastal rock that I'd noticed whilst on a poodle walk. I would pass it by every time we walked to Dog Beach. It recalled the abstract modernist photographers ---eg., Aaron Siskind--- associated with the abstract expressionist movement.
Another rock pool whilst on the way to Dog Beach, Victor Harbor, South Australia.
I dont do many snapshots of these as I find them quite difficult to do with respect to lighting and form.

Once again it was made on a poodle walk.
I carried the 5x7 monorail around to Kings Head early one morning before I came to realise that I was really making a rod for my own back using a monorail.
After this exercise I started using a 5x4 Linhof field camera when I had to walk a far away from the car as I I could carry the Linhof in a back pack.
A view of the coastal environment at Port Willunga, South Australia. It is a very popular place in the summer time.
The photo was made in the late afternoon near the Star of Greece restaurant.
The sandstone cliffs at Port Willunga intrigued me because they were in a process of disintegration. Their base was being eaten away by the rising sea levels.
I've always been intrigued by abstract patterns on the coastal rock face.
I have no idea how these marks were formed or made. I just snapped them.
Suddenly I was serious. I wanted to start doing large format photography along the coastal zone. I had restored the equipment and I wanted to use it. So I carried an 8x10 monorail and associated equipment along the cliff top path down to the coastal rocks.
It was a struggle to carry the gear in the early morning. The poodles tracked me when they were walking with Suzanne.
