If it were mine, the seashell image would be framed or otherwise mounted, and hung in my home.

Nice work.

All great images, especially the seashells and the colourful seaweeds - Gippsland seems very exotic from here!

Many thanks guys. That's very encouraging.

There are great kelp forests in the cool waters off south-eastern Australia, which not only make for great dive sites (apparently - not my thing!) but also make beach walks on the southern coasts particularly interesting. Also South Gippsland is well-known for its diverse lichen-covered rocks. Fortunately (unlike many other parts of the Australian coast line) this area hasn't been over-developed either - partly because rocky beaches aren't so great for swimming, and partly because substantial areas have been preserved in parks and reserves. For me, photography on these coasts is like shooting fish in a barrel. There are opportunities wherever you look, in all kinds of weather conditions. The only real limitations are the time to go there and the patience of my companion(s).

Anyway, for an encore, here are some more shots from the area - these from Walkerville, a few kilometres to the north of Bear Gully, on another occasion. K-S2 + DA 12-24.







Edit 14 February 2018: I have fixed an error in the edges in the second image, and adjusted the exposure slightly. I replaced the image both on Flickr and in this thread. I hope this is OK with those who have given this post a like. :-)

My own "brick beach" - the first shot I took with my DA*16-50mm lens after I got it from Henry's last year. Why do I get the feeling I'm being followed?

No reason, no reason at all.... One from a bit further back, watching some nutters good keen people go diving in January (think K-7 and 18-135mm):

Ooh, a "Stuff on Beaches" theme - one of my favorite things, with or without camera in hand!

Welcome to the thread RoxnDox

Here are a few beaches around Bathurst Inlet in Canada's Arctic (mostly previously posted in other threads).









The terraces are there because the land "rebounded" after the last ice sheet melted.

Here's a lichen-covered beach stone:

Another set - Hawaii, Mexico, and Oregon coast this time

Cannon Beach, Oregon. Pillow basalts that make up Ecola Head a mile or so up the beach from our favorite hotel.


Critters on coral - beach reef in Costa Maya, Mexico, right next to the cruise ship pier:

Great beach terraces - those are often hard to capture the scale and get a clear view... Love the licheny rock too!
