Jude’s 2020 Photo Challenge #42: Octobers Theme/Technique – Seascapes

One of my favourite songs to listen to while you scroll

This week's assignment - look for patterns and / or textures along the seashore, this might be in the rocks or shells or seaweed. Try using different depths of field with the same subject then compare them to see which you prefer.

The Sand Images
With water

Made by Sand Crabs up close

Intricate patterns are made

The receding water patterns

The shells and pebbles water patterns

A small Jellyfish and seaweed with bonus bubbles

Windblown Pig-face, buried flower and a stick

Sand textures, dune grass and shadows

Footprints in the sand

I used to cling to rocks now I make an interesting patterns in the sand

The Rock Pool Images

Algae makes a bold colour statement

The folds and patterns of the rocks, the green of the seaweed and subtle sand shapes

The Shells

A close photo of a broken shell accentuated sand and shadow

A contrast and almost moving shell

Using light on the lighter side of the shell leading to a darker side where the shadow resides

Interest is raised by the lines and colours on the shell

The Rocks

Using black and white to accentuate the shadows and highlight the shapes

Looking at subtle colours and textures

Looking at bold colours and textures

Patterns number2

Jude would enjoy seeing your Patterns

I did have a struggle as I have some that I like and wanted to show something that is almost but not quite. What do you think?
