Strange Shapes from the Sea

Strange Shapes from the Sea

After a storm Parson’s Beach is a rich trove of amazing things from the sea. I always like the shapes the seaweed takes and makes. This very low angle shot, taken from beach level below the seaweed itself, emphasizes theĀ bizarre forms. I really like the flip out LCD on the H50, but I am forever dragging my lens cap and strap in the sand. I have learned to check it before I stuff it back into my camera bag with the camera.

Sony DSC H50 at full wide and macro. F4.0 @ 1/200th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

Cropped slightly from both bottom and top in Lightroom. Added Vibrance and Clarity, blackpoint to the right. Graduated filter effect from the top to reduce the brightness of the background.

And here is the more conventional view.
