Stone and Sky by ink-brains2 Stone and Sky by ink-brains2
It's back to nature once again after that super short little intrusion of 'architectural abstracts' :). No plants at the moment, but this is undeniably part of our natural world.

Wave Rock, and Hyden, Western Australia. We took a four and a half hour drive to get there, and four and half hours more to drive back. We probably spent a total of less than two hours walking along the Wave Rock, above it, and then walking through some paths to the Hippos Yawn (which seriously looks like a Hippo Yawning). The Wave Rock is about 100m long, pretty high though, and is shaped like a large wave made out of rock. The colours/stains on the rock were made by the minerals carried over the side of the rock when it rains. They've built a little barrier on top to reduce further erosion, so the rock won't cave in anytime soon. It's a pretty cool sight though, despite the long enough drive!

Lomo LC-A
Fujifilm Superia 400
Settings on Auto, focus at infinity
Scanned from negative with Digital Ice on at Fine, a little cloning and healing brush to even out the areas where the Digital ice healed the scratches, a little sharpening to add detail to the rock (it was blurred a little during the scanning process with Digital Ice on), and a little colour adjustments for optimum colour

Definitely the type of picture I would love in my fav! (Not like I'm biased or anything) The blue is simply exotic, and that stone is so unique, wif all the stripes. Love the simplicity and serenity of this shot. Great Job!

wah!!! you went to wave rock!! I remember seeing a photo of that place as a kid and thought it was so strange, I've wanted to go there since!
cool, I love your take on it, instead of the touristy shot ;) you've got this more abstract... the textures are awesome....

it is a verypowerful shot, i like how the lines in the rock take your eyes into the blue, the colors are amazing
suzums Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2004   Photographer
well shot. I like the angle of separation of rock and sky.
the different layers and colors of rocks makes lovely textures.
and a tiny suggestion on the watermark. may be you should put it on the sky area.
the grain is definetly a little distracting in the sky area. but it still looks alright ;)

I love the simplicity of this. The colors are great. The lines work very well. :+fav:

Nic vivid colours of the sky, and I like the different textures of the rock :)

Oooooh :D I always wanted to go there!! I've seen many photos of that place and it looks just so unusual :D

As for the shot, great composition in this, giving equal weight to the stone and the sky. The details are a tad harsh, but thats to be expected from a rouch rock formation ;) I think you caught it at just the right time of day to get the lighting just right :D
