Trick or treat
When on holiday in Ibiza several years ago I awoke one Sunday morning to find a photo shoot taking place just beneath my balcony.

Points of view
The first picture is a (colour exaggerated) photograph of light reflecting from the ripples produced by the wake of a swimmer in a swimming pool.
The second picture is the same image rotated ninety degrees anticlockwise – but,interestingly, it seems to take on the appearance of a grazing animal! There is a moral here – something about appreciating that on many occasions there is more than one point of view!

Quiet moments in the Botanical Gardens, Jersey
The Invisible Man
The ebbing tide
Listen! you hear the grating roar
Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling,
At their return, up the high strand,
Begin, and cease, and then again begin,’ Matthew Arnold

How an image is processed can significantly affect the viewer’s perception of a scene, as illustrated in the two pictures below. Both were processed from the same original but express different moods.

Stranded on the beach
The chance arrangements of items left stranded on the beach at low tide can provide interesting patterns.

As a small child on my first visit to the seaside I was puzzled by the ‘lather’ at the edge of the sea. My mother used soap powder, so perhaps God did too!
As an adult I am still fascinated by the foam. I become totally absorbed when watching the magical formation of ever-changing patterns as the sea’s energy explodes on the shore and then hurriedly withdraws.
