And I get so tired when I have to explain
When you’re so far away from me
See you’ve been in the sun and I’ve been in the rain
And you’re so far away from me

So far away from me
So far I just can’t see
So far away from me
You’re so far away from me…

- Dire Straits, “So Far Away”, Lyrics

Photograph taken at Point Lonsdale, Victoria, in January 2012 with a Canon EOS250D, digitally altered and layered with my own textures in Photoshop CS3.

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.

    Very nice use of textures on this, Chris. Looks as if it was painted on canvas. What a beautiful and relaxing scene. Well done!

  • Chris, thanks so much. The tiny dot midway along the beach is Tom and Ralph. Sadly, it was Ralph’s last long walk on the beach. He became distressed on the way back, and we had to take it very slowly. We still miss him terribly, but have that gloriously happy day at the beach to remember our darling boy.
