Patea in sepia



The remains of the Waitangi that sank in 1923. The tide exposes it every 10 years or so.

The sepia works great on these photos. My favorite is the first because it has depth and contrast with the smooth hills in the background and the craggy, sinewy shape of the driftwood. Great job.

I love how you captured and shared this special scene. Did you say 'every 10 years?'

I wonder why you can not reply by simply commenting on the visitor's blog. It is faster than eMail. Just asking.

I agree with Clipped Wings. The sepia is a great media to use for this. Love the lines of the wood.

Patea? I was there once, what seems like a lifetime ago. Your beautiful sepia photos really do bring out the place's haunting quality. Lovely!

I like the composition and feeling of the first and the last.

I love your photos, and the sepia tone is perfect for them.

I like how using sepia brings out the nuances of texture and shadows in photos. Also the solemn beauty of things. Beautiful!

They are just BEAUTIFUL - I have a thing for driftwood on a beach and sepia enhances the image. My you are gifted. Wait til I show Hubby - he'll be green (or maybe even sepia) with envy.
