Field Trip – On Our Way Home

Also Through to the Ocean

We stopped, as I’ve told you, at Anglesea so we could get a closer look at the fence.  I showed two images of it on Sunday.  I took many more, as I said, and I’m going to show you those today.

This was the back of it.  I thought I would show a lot more details of it today.

The bolts holding it together were rusting away, which is not surprising considering everything rusts near the ocean.  The fence thing is very strange.  I love the fence posts, but how long it will last with the tide constantly bashing it remains to be seen.

Here is a close shot of the bolt and you can see the rust permeating the wood.  Beautiful colour.  The wood, the bolt and the rust are really interesting together.

I love this image, it is one of my favourites.  The sun wasn’t out, but it looks really bright. I also think the pole on the end is very interesting.  What happened to it?  I can only imagine that it is a victim of where it is.  You can see the rail that goes along the back has been broken off as well.

I decided to do the image in black and white as well.

I find this one just sparkles.  I can’t decide between the two, which one I like the most.  You might have to decide for me.

Which one do you like the best?

  1. For once, I have a hard time deciding which I like best. They are all so nice :-) If I really have to choose, I’ll go for the close up of the bolt. Something about the wood grain and the bolt’s rust is captivating.

    • Yes, the way the rust leaches into the wood and turns it rusty as well is really interesting. Thanks for letting me know.

    For me it’s number 1 and 4, again it’s the warm honey colours against the grey. It’s all about the lovely colours (the touch of green from the sea in number 4 and the gold in the sand is exquisite). You’re a master editor Leanne!

    • I don’t know about master editor, but I’m working on it. I love those two as well, especially number 4, I might have to get it printed and see how it looks then. Thanks.

  4. Wow…the second-to-last one is just perfect…and I’m usually voting for the B&W!
    Maybe I can make a run down to the beach for some photos next week – you’ve inspired me!

    • Yes, you should, I”m hoping to get some more today. I think I love photographing the beach, just a shame it is a couple of hours away. I just need to plan more. I love that one as well. I think there is a calmness about it. Thanks Marie

  5. My favourite is the first of the series. Your pictures tell a story – and really deserved to be published in a coffee table book.

    • That would be nice, but not likely to happen right now, haha, still trying to hone my craft. I think it is weird how the rocks are behind, almost like a last defence against the tide. Thanks Colline

    I vote B & W but my favourite is the first image – but then I am partial to rocks.

    May 10, 2012
    • I think a lot of people like rocks. I’m going to rocks this afternoon, I hope. I love the water crashing over them, or trying to stop the water. I couldn’t decided with the last two, there is something about both. Thanks Liz

  7. These are beautiful! The old wood and rust, I can’t explain why I love that look, lol! But the pictures are amazing :)

    • I don’t know either, but you aren’t alone, seems many people find the same thing. I love them as well. This lot are among my very favourites that I took on the weekend.

  8. Hey there, Leanne … I’m liking the colour, texture and patterns in these shots … not moody, but creating moods … good ones. :)

    May 11, 2012
    • I like that, creating moods, I think I do do that. I like drama in my images, and do that as much as possible. I think you do that as well in your images. Thanks.

  9. Beautiful, Leanne. :)

  10. Hi, Leanne
    I’m a sucker for old wood and rust. I like all of these shots a lot!

    May 13, 2012
    • Sorry I missed this.
      Hi Paul, yeah, there is something really beautiful about it. :)
