This unusual rock formation caught my eye in a creek bed recently.
It looked almost like a wave with either the tree about to be engulfed or the tree resisting the the oncoming force.
A really good illustration of sedimentary layers exposed by the occasional flowing of the creek.
Patterns, they say, are one of the so-called rules of composition and sand dunes are wonderful places to find them.
Sculpted by the wind, there is a never ending and constantly changing mix of patterns and shapes.
Desert dunes have different texture and colour to their seaside cousins.
The great thing about standing around waiting on the light to work its magic on on some big landscape is that quite often there will be something small or insignificant that’s going to make an interesting picture too
With plenty of time to play around with, you can get up to all sorts of mischief.
Over exposing the branches of a nearby acacia bush was one way of making something a little interesting out of what would otherwise be nothing at all.
This was shot on an old Canon D20 at f10, 1/250th sec, ISO 200, focal length 70mm
From raging torrents to streams that make gentle waves…which in time become patterns frozen in the fine, rich red mud washed down from the mountains.
Chaos and turmoil…….an outback creek at full pace after a recent thunderstorm.
