I'd walked past this rock formation for a year or more on the daily poodlewalks without noticing it:
I only noticed it when we had to hang about waiting for some people and their dog to pass our location by on the coastal path.
Early morning light at Dep's Beach. The photo was made whilst I was on an early morning poodle walk.
The quartz and the granite looks good in the early morning light
just beyond Dog Beach on the way to Kings Beach. I was attracted by the white shape.
Victor Harbor, Fleurieu Peninsula.
This was what I had in mind ---erosion of the base of the cliffs:
But how do you represent rising sea levels photographically? Photographing the same spot over a number of years?
I started venturing beyond my local coastal patch around Victor Harbor. The first spot I investigated was the sandstone cliffs at Port Willunga
I had read about their erosion and I revisited them, as I thought that it might make a suitable project for the effects of climate change. Rising sea levels eroding the base of the cliffs was the idea I had in mind.
Sea flows along the coast west of Rosetta Head.
I was able to do these kinds of movement when I had a zoom lens on a digital camera.
There is not much flotsam washed up in the beaches around Encounter Bay in Victor Harbor. This was further west:
It was at the foot of the cliffs near Kings Beach.
Photographing in low light again in order to represent the colour of the rocks that is present in certain conditions.
These conditions are normally seen during dusk -what photographers often call the magic hour.
