Seaweed and Stone

After a stormy morning, the rocky fringe at the base of the cliffs at the Tide Pools (Cabrillo National Monument) was littered wit interesting seaweed. Add the interesting texture of some of the conglomerate stones, and the range of tones and colors in the stone, and it kept me busy for close on a half hour. The rain helped…as these stones would not have been nearly as interesting dry.

Canon SX10IS at about 115mm equivalent. F4.5 @ 1/80th @ ISO 125. Programmed auto.

In Lightroom, just a bit of Recovery for highlights. Blackpoint right slightly. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen landscapes preset.

Two others from the same session. I am really liking the way the Canon captures texture. The stones here are, to my eye, just as I remember them.

About 60mm @ F3.5 @ 1/8th and ISO 80, and about 100mm @ F4 @ 1/80th and ISO 80.

From San Diego 2010.
