A GARDEN UNDER THE SEA

A YEAR IN MY GARDEN OCEAN SERIES

Yesterday we took a day off from renovating and took ourselves and Pierre down to Culburra beach on the South Coast. After that massive storm last week, so much "stuff" was washed on what was left of the beach. I have put together a collection of photographs of the utter beauty that are under our oceans.

To me it was just like visiting an open garden except we were on a beach......

I photographed these on a gold reflector board to highlight the sculptural shapes of the things I collected.....

Some shapes were very interesting to say the least.....

Some were like gossamer.....

Then we had tumbleweeds.....you could just imagine these spinning and spinning in the frothy ocean to form these shapes.

I am not a scuba diver or snorkling person, so to me this was such a treat to have these fascinating flowers of the sea wash up for me to photograph.

Hope you enjoy the pics.
