Lori and I caught up over the weekend in Perth and I took a bunch of water abstracts… This is the reflection of an orange boat in the water, and the movement is due to a (relatively) slow shutter speed.

    Wow, what a colour! Perfect composition :)

  • Thank you! I got lucky with a few of them in terms of composition… it’s really difficult to actually compose these shots, because they change so quickly!

    I really love the contrasting colours, what exactly is it?

  • Thanks, Angela! If I remember correctly, I think this was the edge of a boat reflected in the water. I took so many photos though… I’m not sure now!!

    Sorry, Kymie… Next time I’m sure I’ll be in town for longer, and I’ll be more organised… it was a last minute thing! :)
