Underside of an old boat in dry dock at Carabelle, FL.Nikon D80, Nikon 60mm macro on tripod. Sold 16×20 Canvas piece Sept 2011 – purchased by a local Arts Council as a gift to retiring Chairman.

From the same shoot:


abstract, red, old, boat, black, green, florida, macro, vivid, vibrant, rusty, nautical, crusty, peeling paint, natural texture, extreme close up

I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of buildings, battered boats up on dry dock, rotting wood, bark of trees, and so on. Im fascinated by the color and texture that appears with a macro lens. I do almost no post-processing after taking the shot.

    More great stuff! This one looks like an aerial shot of a massive fire. Or it looks like any number of other things. Fantastic!

  • You know, you’re right about the fire …. Im too long away from my homeland (Australia) to immediately see “bush fire” when I see red! Glad you like it.
