Yesterday was another gloriously sunny Spring day on Skye. We went to Waterloo, one of our favourite places near where we live. The beach is littered with ‘seaglass’ that Di uses to make her art. I helped her look for it and found some images as well. One part of the coast is a large shelf of rock. If I were a geologist I could explain exactly what the rock is and how long ago these shelves were created. You’ll have to make do without this information and just enjoy the images.
Colour did not add much to the image, in fact it detracted. So, I used Silver Efex Pro 2 to create the monochrome versions. I have been using this Lightroom Plugin for years and recently the company that owned it was taken over by Google and they made it available for free. I would recommend all photographers that produce Black & White images to download it.
I enjoyed the geometric patterns in the rock. The straight lines seemed unnatural, but they were definitely produced by natural forces, maybe the cooling down of the lava when it poured into the cold water? The title is both a literal description: it is where the fissures and plates of rock come together, but it also refers to these places as opportunities for both people and birds to meet.
