Kings Run, West coast Tasmania…..
The sea was a black living thing, heaving and swirling, white tendrils atop its oily boiling mass,
…..and in its path, its shape forged by the pounding,
a block of granite, as old as the eons,
but standing there, immoveable, massive…..

Canon 5D Mk II, 28 to 135mm lens, at 50mm,
ISO 50, F13, 1 sec, one ND grad filter,
…originally in “landscape” mode, but looked more dramatic in “mono”, and a tweak of contrast, and a slide of shadow, and some rather silly words…..
…..and this is the result…….

Live the life you should have,
Live the life you want,
Live like theres no tomorrow,

(and take photos, lots of them)
