Monthly Display - May 2021


A Trip To Christies Beach

On 26th April 2021, my wife and I took a trip to Christies Beach, which is some distance south of Adelaide. We travelled there using the train from the city. We were expecting good weather with a maximum temperature of around 22 degrees Celsius. I used to live in a flat on The Esplanade at Christies Beach back in 1986-1987, so I know the area pretty well. It was an excellent trip out.

This month's display starts with a selection of 10 photographs taken during that trip (or a similar one which was done in April 2019). Those 10 photographs are then followed by a selection of 10 drawings or paintings that I produced while I lived at Christies Beach from 1986 - 1987.

The recent photographs shown here were all taken with a Sony A6000 digital camera. The photographs were recorded as RAW images, and processed using Phase One's Capture One Pro software. This software gives subtle control over exposures, white balance, colour sensitivities, image rotation, sharpening, distortion correcting, etc.

Most of the photographs presented in this month's display were taken while walking along a pathway that runs along the base of the cliffs surrounding Witton Bluff. Highly related to this month's display, is my separate module called "Yellows and Oranges against Deep Cobalt Blue" (which is also based on walking along the same pathway).
