A loose connection as to why I named this image Quicksand

I’m sinking in the quicksand of my thoughts
I’m closer to the golden Dawn……
I’m torn between the light and dark….
I’m not a prophet or a stone age man just a mortal with the potential of a superman……

- QUICKSAND - David Bowie

Have recently reprocess many images of mine in the 3 × 1 crop format and loving the effect. This image is from a favourite set of mine tonemapped using the new photomatix pro and really loving the results, very subtle HDR indeed, also added a ’tobacco filter in colour Efex Pro…hope you like it !!

Nikon D90
Sigma 10-20mm @ 10mm
6.0 sec exposure
ISO 100

Appreciating and capturing light is the cornerstone to my photography. combine this with the beauty of our Western Australian beaches and rocky coastline and you have something that should be both witnessed, captured and shared.

I hope I can inspire you to take the time to see a sunrise or sunset, on a coast or a rocky outcrop somewhere, and then maybe you can understand why for me, Photography has become a passion……
