seaweed on rock

This  picture was made on a recent  afternoon poodlewalk with Maleko during  October 2019.   Maleko was looking for golf balls and I was wandering around the rocks with a camera. The location is  just east of Kings Beach Rd on the eastern edge of Waitpinga.

 It was a calm evening, with soft light and low tide. This combination  doesn't happen very often. So I spend some time sitting quietly  the rocks. I haven't been able to return to the location since because the tides have been too high.

This picture of  water at a rocky outcrop west of  Kings Head in Waitpinga was made just after I acquired a new, full frame  digital camera--a Sony Alpha A7r111. I was trying to see if the camera was an improvement on my earlier digital camera--a Sony NEX-7. Was it worth the money that I paid to go full frame?

A test image if you like to assess the dynamic range from white  to black:  

I was fascinated by the water rushing through the crevice in the rocks. It was low tide and that allowed me to I climb down into the crevice to photograph the rocks and water. This is not something that I would normally do on this outcrop, as it is quite dangerous.
