This week I almost didn’t have anything to upload, and I almost went for Sasi’s idea of using the eggs 🙂 Fortunately, Nikhil had a desire to go check out the Kingston Promenade again, so we took a few minutes and went.
I started out with my Tamron telephoto lens but quickly switched to the ultra-wide Sigma 10-20, I had noticed the skies were nice, some clouds, some patches of blue showing, some streaky areas, and some heavily clouded areas, so I thought something good can come of that.
I got a few keepers from the shoot, but this one stands out, somehow a coconut got wedged or nestled into the hollow of a tree trunk on the beach… Nature’s “hole-in-one” 🙂

Really cool! When people say Man is destroying the Earth, Man isn’t even close to the chaos Mother Nature can do. We burn some fossil fuel and create a haze in the sky, Mother Nature erupts the Ice Land volcano and shuts down the sky. So again, Mother Nature….
Thanks Andrew, mother nature is awesome 🙂
That’s a very nice shot. The texture of the log and the lines of the clouds in the sky really go together well.
Thanks Binky, I am glad you like it, thanks for stopping by, please do so again.
Good stuff Mike, it came out quite nicely. I haven’t even looked at mine yet, but I have been thinking about the few I took as we were about to leave 🙂
Thanks Nik, yes the latter few were more up your alley 🙂
I like it, good composition and perspective, and you do have to wonder how that coconut got up there…
Thanks Mike, I was a bit off-balance when I took it so I had to do some rotational correction 🙂
Gosh, I love that perspective and the wide angle view. Another picture worth a thousand words. Great capture.
Thanks Martina, you can share the thousand (or more) words 🙂
Great dof! I’m liking what that lens can do – nice sky too!
Thanks Sheila, I like the ultra-wide lens for my scenic or landscape shots, learning what a lens can do for the image is half the fun 🙂
are you ever going to do a tutorial showing how you convert to monochrome? 🙂
You know Nigel, I think I’ve taken monochromes for granted, I just never thought that someone would want to know how I do mine 🙂 I think I’ll take you up on this one 🙂
It should be nice to have a photo buddy…
Wonder how the coconut got in there…nature’s play I guess 😉
Love the infinite focus besides the texture on the log.
Thanks Sasi, Nature sure has a way with things 🙂
Very dramatic, Michael. Perfectly composed and great subject.
Thanks Cindy, I think we spent quite a few minutes on this subject that day 🙂
I absolutely love the texture of the sky and wood, along with all of the detail in the log. The black and white presentation highlights contrast and composition. Beautiful shot!
Thanks Jonathon, whie the wood and the coconut were the main things to draw my eye, I just had to get in that sky 🙂
You must give compliments to mother nature for such great placement! 😛 How do you like the Nik Silver EFex, I was thinking about checking that one out or perhaps the HDR one. Thanx for any input.
Thanks David, I love the Nik software, makes some things so much easier, I’ll drop you a line on them 🙂
