Sand Sculptures taken on Cable Beach whilst waiting for our sunset Camel ride along the beach.
Cable Beach is a 22 kilometres stretch of beach at Broome. It was named after the telegraph cable laid between Broome and Java in 1889.
I was immediately attracted to the interesting and intricate patterns the sand crabs created when digging out these little balls of sand and placing them so carefully.
There is structure and beauty in their designs. Channelling my friend Maiva I set about capturing this natural beauty. I was looking for interesting shapes and compositions to highlight the work of the crabs in creating these amazing sand sculptures.
The images were practically monochrome straight out of camera so it was an easy decision to convert them all to monochrome using the same settings. Lightroom makes this very easy by allowing you to select multiple images to edit concurrently as a set.
In the end I made a portfolio of eight (8) of the images – all vertical. I’ve included five of them here for your viewing pleasure. Can you see the creatures and shapes within or havn’t you taken the blue pills yet…
