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 littoral zone

I have decided to turn this blog from a gallery of photos  of the Fleurieu Peninsula to photos of  the littoral zone. In coastal environments the littoral zone extends from the high water mark, which is rarely inundated, to shoreline areas that are permanently submerged. It always includes this intertidal zone and is often used to mean the same as the intertidal zone.

Though the littoral zone is from the shoreline to 600 feet (183 meters) out into the water,  my major focus  is the  intertidal zone, which is between the high-tide and low-tide lines.  This  is the shoreline which  is what I walk along with the poodles. 

The change is a result of the pictures of the Fleurieu Peninsula becoming more focused and being shaped into more of  a project geared towards an exhibition in 2016.   

sea abstract #1

An attempt at abstractions from the sea in an attempt to shift to a  more expressive  kind of photography.

This was made from the breakwater created to protect for the new all weather boat ramp  near Whalers Resort at Encounter Bay, Victor Harbor.  The boat lobby--recreational fishermen--- is quite powerful.
