I’m feeling smug that I made the decision to do some photography this morning as it is now snowing like crazy! Today I took advantage of a short window of time between storm clouds to visit Kye Bay on the Comox Peninsula. This past weekend I explored the beach with my husband and my friends from Nanaimo. We found it to be fantastic beach for beach combing and I wanted to return with my camera. This morning I found the rock and sand beach to be strewn with driftwood and seaweed. I used my Nikon D300 and a 105mm lens plus my handy Joby Gorillapod to capture the beautiful, vibrant colours of this seaweed. I have recently started painting again and I think that this photo represents my love affair with abstraction. It also seems like a great colour scheme for Valentine’s and Chinese New Year.
