These photographs of the Sahsima transformer stone were shot at the same time as yesterday’s photograph (which is facing east from nearly the same location). These images also have the same problem of an incorrect white balance setting which led me to black and white treatments to recover something from the jpegs.
The upper image was processed with tone-mapping of a single image. The lower one is an HDR treatment of five exposures, that were not taken with HDR in mind and thus with uneven EV differences between the brackets.
Does anyone else see a small creature on the driftwood? I think it might be an alien hoping to pass as a bit of the driftwood. Probably an anthropologist from another galaxy, none too quick on its feet to be caught in a photo, that is interested in transformer stones and figuring out how the power works that can turn people to stone.
The picture below shows the reason I went to the beach in the first place, hoping for a good shot of a log boom and attendant tugs close in to Harling Point, and struggling with the current. I did not get the shot I was after – 200mm was not long enough – but it did get me out to take pictures.
