Beach Textures – Part 1

On a recent trip to Australia, I gathered a large collection of closeups on the beaches. Around the area of Cape Bridgewater, in South West Victoria, there are some simply amazing, unspoiled beaches. They stretch for miles, and often there is barely a single other person on them.

The weather patterns are extremely changeable here, as the next stop south is Antarctica. The sea can be ferocious, however, which naturally stirs up all sorts of interesting things from beneath its surface, which are then dumped along the coastline. Sadly, these conditions also mean that the water is almost always cold, so on a bright sunny hot day, taking a dip is still a struggle, for me anyway!

I often give myself a sore neck when I am out with my camera, spending much of the time looking at the ground for interesting shapes, patterns & textures. These beaches are perfect for this habit, and here is a small handful of those shots, with more to come I’m sure! One of my favourite lenses for these kind of images has to be my Canon 85mm f1.8, which is what was used for all of the above.
