The crystal water of the South Pacific Ocean rushes towards a rock on the shore at Bar Beach in Australia. I liked the colours and textures of the rock set against a backdrop of the water.

This shot was captured using a Canon 450D:
F-stop: f/5.6
Exposure time: 1/2000 sec.
ISO speed: ISO-200
Exposure bias: -1 step
Focal length: 100 mm [ on a 55-250 mm lens ]
WB: Auto
Aperture Priority

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.
