PEASE BAY

I journeyed a few miles south from the location of the earlier post to arrive at Pease Bay; the bay is popular with tourists to the area for its clean, sandy beach but on this day it was all but deserted. I remembered from a previous visit to Pease Bay that the exposed rock face on the northern edge of the Bay presented a distinct mute-red colour and felt that might prove a worthwhile subject for photography. In the event, however, the day was overcast with thick mist hanging low over a rough sea with the tide just beginning to ebb. And so, the motion of the sea became the subject and not the rock face.

I attempted many exposures but in the end I was happiest with this image as it really captures the turbulent water; the atmospheric conditions add to the mood of the scene.

A lone piece of seaweed is left abandoned by the rapidly retreating tide; the hint of dull, red rock on the left lifts the image ever so slightly from the monochromatic.
