beach abstracts (3 images)

The daughter and I headed out to the beach yesterday. As it was midday and the light was not optimal, I concentrated on taking abstract shots of little scenes with my macro lens.

While out at the beach I came across these rock layers coloured in beautiful earthy pastels. The tones and  structure of the stone reminded me of a cubist painting by Georges Braque.

This beach at the extreme south-east tip of Pender Island faces Boundary Pass, an aptly named strait that runs along the border between Canada and the United States. It is the only place on the island that I’ve seen massive rock formations like these in the water.

Last year I took a picture at this beach from a different perspective. Interestingly, on my latest visit I noticed that some of the smaller boulders had shifted and one seemed to have sunk out of sight altogether. Nothing stays the same on these shores.
