I liked the look of the orange at the centre of this photograph of rocks on a beach north of Wallaroo so cropped close and started modifying to bring out the best image. It was only when I’d finished that I realised I had no idea what the picture was of!
I’m pretty sure the orange stuff is rock but it looks organic, almost like guts spilled out. It is set in rock (or concrete?) that is almost semi-circular: that doesn’t look natural, does it?. And what makes it so fluorescent. I then went back to the unenhanced original pic:
but that doesn’t help much except to show, perhaps, more orange staining below the weird stuff. Or is that a trick of the light.
These beaches have a lot of stuff left over from the copper mining industry but most of that is green. I give up, any ideas?
