tidal pool, rocks, basalt coast, bette devine
Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.
Thank you, Stephanie!

Highly detailed yet still looks realistic. The underwater detail is especially impressive.
Thanks for your considered comments, Celeste! Many years ago I managed a beautiful medium format film shot of this same pool. Must have been a different time of day for the light enabled all the underwater detail to be clearly shown. That same day, I caught shots of waves breaking and shooting up through the arch of a previous photo!
Cool,clear water, Lovely capture Bette x
I’m glad you like it, Pauline.x

Beautiful scene and capture, very pretty with all the colors. fav.
Thanks for your kind comment, Rosalie.
This is really beautiful, Bette. I’m sure it takes some of us back to days of yore when exploring rock pools with a jam jar and fishing net was such fun……well it still is for me! Super reflections, it looks a magical place! I’d love to have seen your medium format pic, being an enthusiast of that era of photography too. My favourite was a German Balda Super Baldax 6×6 format, which used to take really sharp images. It had a strange lens called an Ennit! Sounds like some unusual insect….. Made in the 50s……only yesterday!! ;-)Dave.
Ah, Dave, you’ll have me weeping soon!I do not remember ever seeing your brand of camera, but 6×6 in Pentax (my preferred brand) was considered the classic. I had a Pentax 645 with three lenses. The zoom lens weighed more than the camera and the whole set was very heavy for little me to tote around – along with tripod, water,food,rain gear etc. There is some consolation in having less weight to carry, and I am having a good time learning more about digital !
Thanks for your great response, Heather!
