As it has been a  while  since I posted here -- around 5 months ago.  I've posted  a couple of images of  ephemeral and transitory subject matter from around December 2022. The foam would last a  minute or so  before evaporating with the tide and  the wind. 

This  picture was made was on an early morning walk along the coastal rocks  from Petrel Cove.

On the Esplanade Beach in the early morning around sunrise.

 It has been a while since kayla and I have walked along this beach.  We have returned because the grass seeds in the bushland are all pervasive.  

a day after the storm

Winter is now easing into spring.The light is changing,  sunrise is much earlier, the sun is shifting more to the south  and the light  is becoming much more intense and contrasty earlier in the morning.   

We continue to stay close to home apart from going on the Lavender Trail camps.   The final one is one is in  September at Clare. 

 We experienced a big storm front that swept across South Australia in late August bringing rain,  wild seas and gale force winds. Maleko and  I wandered along the coastal rocks on the afternoon  after the storm had passed.  

I made a video of the surging waves using the iPhone as well as  an abstract

foam + granite

Below is a picture of foam and granite along the coastal rocks just west of Petrel Cove on the southern Fleurieu Peninsula. 

 It was made on a day  after the big storm in early May.  Though the  storm had passed  the seas were still surging and they  were too rough for the surfers.  The 2 metre high waves dumped,  rather than rolled into the shore.  

The picture  above refers back to this earlier  picture of foam as well as  to this one.   This is what the littoral zone looks like during,  or just after,  a big storm from the south west.   The foam quickly vanishes.
