Sunlight twinkling in shallow water, Mevagissey harbour, Cornwall; 4 Oct 2006. 

A bright sunny morning, and we walked down to Mevagissey’s harbour.  The tide was out, and there were shallows above the dark rocks of the harbour’s floor.  The sun shone brightly, and as the shallow water was pulled this way and that by wavelets and currents, the bright reflections skittered around ceaselessly and fast – and I needed a high shutter speed to capture a frozen moment of this transient beauty.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    A moment of motion, frozen in time. I really like the golden-yellow of the refracted light and–unless I miss my guess–the 90-degree rotation for that added bit of mystery.


  2. Very nice abstract. Perfect color palette.

    Wonderful Adrian. Light on water can be a heady mix

    Beautiful abstract, A, even if it’s not an abstract.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
