Slab Sunset III

Lit Slab Colour 1

Slab Sunset and Slab Sunset II from a week or two ago showed rock slabs reflecting the setting sun. Today it is just one of these slabs, up close, again in both colour and black and white. The whole time I was taking these shots a seal was keeping an eye on what I was doing. I thought it might show up in one of my shots, but not that I have noticed.

It’s a toss-up for me on these two – I like the better detail in the distant Olympic Mountains in the first version, and the likewise the mid-tone details in the middle ground of the black and white. I processed these a couple of weeks ago, and if I were doing so again, I think I would adjust the black and white to have better definition in the mountains and then it would definitely be my preference of these two.

    • Thanks Karen. I really like the non-slab rocks in the black and white – they seem much better than in the colour to my eye. I agree about the colours though, it was a lovely evening.


    • Hi James – that rock is cold – it was a cold day. In the summer it is probably warm, but the nearby ocean, which in fact covers it at high tide, is bloody cold all year round so the rock is unlikely to ever get really hot.
