It's a pleasure to be one of the Essendon Camera Club members exhibiting as part of this exhibition. My photographic contribution at the Incinerator Gallery is my image featuring the coastline at Point Lonsdale on the Bellarine Peninsula,Victoria, Australia.
Fascinated by the Australian coastline and looking out to sea, I find myself gripped by the colours and textures of nature. Travelling to Point Lonsdale in Victoria simply inspires my creativity. In recording this scene, I feel like a blessed creator who was there to record a memorable moment in time. The sense of warmth, on what was a winter's day, tends to take hold and draw one into this landscape.
Let your eyes be drawn to those rocks because they are a symbol of our planet's evolution. I want you to see how the sky illuminated this magnificent landscape and accentuated the shapes and lines.
The power of light is an amazing tool in which the photographer has at their disposal. With decades of photographic experience and knowledge gained, one can utilise such skills to produce a scene that is timeless. In making this image, I find myself privileged to share it with you. I trust it inspires you in some way and causes you to reflect on good times.
I invite you to look into the photograph and see each of the elements. What do you see? Is it the clouds, colours, shapes, horizon, wave action? Reflect upon your memories of times you've spent with a friend along the coast. I would like my image to inspire your imagination and feelings.
