Stripes

I was struck by the almost graphic arts nature of the stripes on this beach - and the addition of a White-Faced Heron made it even better.

This picture was taken on Churchill Island - which is an small island just off shore from Phillip Island.


You can find more pictures from around the world at Our World Tuesday.  SM

How striking. The three colors of the wrack line contrasting with the red dirt/stones makes it very interesting. Great shot.

Nice shot! Mother Nature is quite the artist, isn't she?

Understand you were in England when I was meeting up with Marie on the same day. How strange is that! We enjoyed our first exposure to the UK. Tons of photos to sort now.

A great shot Stewart, especially when enlarged and looked at in detail. A real beauty for poster size.

Cool shot! :) I have stripes also on my blog today. ;)

Well observed nature shot! It would make a great poster!

A real art study. Lovely. Thanks for hosting.

This is a "hang on the wall" kind of picture. Artistic effects that those of us who dabble in it would die to achieve. Good eye, Stewart. This is truly awesome ...

Hey that's pretty cool. You have a good eye sir. Looks like everyone thinks you have a good eye---now you have two. LOL

Yes a cuppa by the fire would be nice too. MB

Mother nature (although cruel and unforgiving at times) is quite the artist. This is a beautiful photo Stewart! I agree about the heron.
