seaweed + granite

The picture below was made whilst I was on a  recent  late afternoon  poodlewalk along the granite rocks at the foot fo the cliffs near Kings Beach.  Maleko was with me:

There was some cloud cover that afternoon,   due to a strong south westerly wind blowing. The sun kept popping in and out of the clouds. There were a few drizzly showers the following morning  when I was walking the poodles along a backcountry road.     

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.  

colour

I   wandered around exploring the western edge of Deps Beach  whilst  waiting for Suzanne to finish chatting with a friend  one Sunday morning.  I started  photographing the various strips of seaweed lying in the sand with my makeshift macro camera:   

I was fascinated by the colour of these  seaweed strips  in the early morning light. I had never seen this type of seaweed before. It was all over the sand at the western edge  of the beach.
