Made on an early morning poodlewalk with Kayla:
Kayla found the dead bird lying on Dep's Beach. I bought its wing back to some granite rocks just west of Petrel Cove, which was still in shadow and set up an open air studio.
Made whilst walking an injured Kayla along the beach at Encounter Bay:
It was an overcast morning.
From an open air studio:
The seaweed pods were casually arranged on granite rocks whilst I was on an early morning poodle walk
This fish skeleton was washed lying on the beach next to the Encounter Bay boat ramp, during the height of the recreational fishing in the summer holiday season in the early new year.
This happens each year.
The wild storms and rain have passed. I have returned to exploring the literal zone. The sky is clear in the morning, and there is early morning light on the coastal rocks:
The light now is very different from that before the storms that battered South Australia.
Made on an early morning poodle walk when it wasn't raining:
The location was Dep's Beach west of Rosetta head, near Victor Harbor.
The 2016 winter has been very stormy and wet with a few sunny , calm days in-between. Consequently, we have seen wild, surging seas along the granite coast west of the Victor Harbor township and Rosetta Head. The picture below was made whilst on an early morning poodle walk at Dep's Beach.
This image of a detail of the coastal granite rock was made on an early morning poodle walk with Kayla and Ari:
We had a morning of gentle winter sunlight amidst all the winter rains. It didn't last as it started raining now latter in the day. It is also very cold. More winter storms are expected.
