Sculpture of Seaweed and Light

Sculpture of Seaweed and Light

I took a run to the beach after capturing the dandelion yesterday, and continued the theme of low angle shots involving mostly the light. The tide was coming in fast (this is the Gulf of Maine and tides run 10 to 12 feet on a mild day), and the tide-was littered with all kinds of seaweed. As the surf folded and molded it with each pass, and as the low light caught it, translucent, against the sea, it made for some fascinating shapes. I got my toes wet quite a few times but managed to keep the camera out of the drink.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide and macro. F5.0 @ 1/250th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

A touch of Recovery in Lightroom for the highlights. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen.

And the video version.
