The profile of the shoreline along the coast is always changing. Big seas rip the sand from our beaches and then rips and currents drag it out to sea, often exposing reefs and rocks that were previously covered with sand. I found these rocks sticking out of the sand at a local beach called “The Cliff” (in New South Wales, Australia), in Autumn 2014. There are many rocks along the shore there now, that were previously totally covered by sand in the 1970’s and 1980’s and maybe much later on.
The original digital photograph was captured with a Canon 450D and a 55 – 250 mm lens:
Exposure time: 1/1000 sec.
ISO speed: ISO-100
Exposure bias: -0.3 step
Focal length: 55 mm [ on a 55 – 250 mm lens ]
The image was imported into Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 where a texture was added to tweak the colours of the photo, giving it some pastel hues.
