Roxas mono series - Casanayan rocky shores

Ventured to the other side of the Casanayan fishing village cove and found a bounty -- rocky shores exposed by the low tide. Not feeling any particular impulse to shoot much, found myself a flatter piece of boulder and lied down to watch the sky and the waves. The shade provided by the bamboos near the shoreline and the sight of Pulo Dako and Pulo Gamay (big and little islands), not to mention the lapping of the waves nearly drove me to sleep. Ahh, this is pure bliss. Mono conversion and global adjustments done using CS2

i always wonder how those rock formations on sea shores were formed. i only know that water can be so strong to do that but it can also be due to tectonic plate movements. i like this one.

dominic, water is a powerful shaper of the land and seascapes :-) could also be the shifting of the plates as you deduced. either way, there's beauty in the rawness of this landscape that the sea reclaims every day with the coming of the tides. just makes you wax poetic if you really think about the coming and going of the tides and the hiding and revealing of the rocky shores.

bai! i'm experimenting with monos especially with the captures we took when the sun was high up in the sky. the harsh lighting works better with monos, imho. glad you liked them :-) i just might have exhausted my mono cachet though :-D
