Trapped in the crevices these stones were being polished by time. Already smooth and rounded from being moved around against each other by the waves washing up the beach.
Found in the company of Andrew (macondo), Santo (skippy007) and Klaudio (daddo) at the end of a pleasant day exploring the Bellarine Peninsula, near Melbourne.

Beautiful colours and great management of light. The stones in the foreground hold the composition together. Good depth. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Steve. It is a revelation how a group of individuals, each with a camera, end up interpreting and recording what is around them So far my first photo, Andrew's and yours couldn't be more different each from the other. I totally ignored the finer and closer things to me and looked at the bigger picture. We all did but I haven't got such shots in my collection. Gentle light, muted compatible colours and great depth regardless of the immediate interest before one's feet.I wonder what Santo might post if he does return to TE. Looking forward to our next venture. Regards. Klaudio.

Some beaches are real treasure-troves for beautiful stones or pebbles and I have spent considerable time looking for nice ones. It's a good way to kill time during a day at the beach. I wouldn't say that these stones bring life to the composition but they do provide a fine foreground. The sandy beach looks like a good place for going barefoot and at this time of the day the light is just fantastic. You managed the sparse light very well.

The excellent point of view and composition
creates a lots of depth and makes the
picture nice calmness, the vertical position
and the stones on the forground emphasize
extra the depth and make the picture extra
exciting. The light management is also
Not the long exposure produced, but the high
f-number, creates the "star effect" in lights,
or in the Sun. Watch out by the last one (the
Sun, because it's unhealthy for your eyes and
for the lens and sensor of your camera.
