Low Tide


In photography, it is often hard in shots that take in distant horizons to avoid the deadening effect of gazing into receding space. Here, drawing the eye to the foreground detail of the incoming tide reverses that effect with the small central sand islands submerging and the symmetry of intense blues at the top and in the bottom third of the picture frame. This image seems to be like a series of simple colour fields broken by a few black slashes that drive the eyes into these submerging islands. 

Taken on Ashai Pentax 6/7. 45mm lens. 100 ASA Ektachrome film. Aperture F16.
