research assignment 5

This photo was found on booooooom, linked to the photographers page.

What drew me to this picture was a memory of a family vacation. What kept me looking longer than that were a couple of things. I found the photo showed a wide variety of textures for one that wasn’t very close up on anything. The ripples of the water moving towards the shore, the grasses in the foreground, the rocks on the point, and the various layers of sand on the beach all stand out very nicely. Also, the curve of the beach leading to the massive rock face and the top of the rock face leading out to sea provide a sense of scale that is amplified by the tiny people on the beach. I love the little islands on the horizon and the waves breaking in between them and the point.
