Two boats at the marina in Wallaroo. Hope the pilot isn’t too tall.
This is a first use of the colouring effect in the graduated filter in Lightroom. I dragged one down from the top to the rear sea level, reduced the exposure and brightness in it and then coloured it a light orange. Too much? Not sure.
Part of the town every kid knows, the local pool is a netted off area of the sea, adjacent to the jetty.
and a wider view from further up the jetty.
In the background is the preserved, last remaining chimney from the old smelting stacks, square shaped in the Cornish tradition. And I just found this shot from the old days:
Even in this shot, the big Hughes Stack stands out. Click on the image to be taken to the SA Memory page describing the photograph and giving information about the smelting era.
This shot shows the underside of the massive conveyor belt from Wallaroo’s grain silo complex to the jetty where the grain is loaded onto ships (see yesterday’s pic). The support structure is used by hundreds of cormorants for roosting.
And a wider shot:
Both shot in the evening.
Held the camera down very low to this rock pool and shot along the water. The rocks are about eighteen inches high.
I made the usual corrections to enhance the picture but also dragged a graduated filter with lowered exposure down from the top right corner to the middle of the shot.
Have I mentioned that I like shooting rock pools?
I liked the arrangement of rocks and water and it was only when I finished tweaking the values that I noticed that the rock in the top left of the picture looked like a hand with forefinger extended and rest of fingers curled into palm. Weird.
Maybe one of Terry Pratchett’s trolls, trying his hand at trout tickling.
I thought of brightening just the hand to make it stand out but like the way it is only barely is realised.
