A bunch of orange kelp lays trailed over piles of rounded beach rocks at the mouth of the Elwha River.
Nice choice in composition and aperture.
The lighting is perfect to capture the earthy, yet bold, colors.
I've seen this before on my trip out to BC. There is some kelp that have giant hollow balls on the end too. Its really weird stuff.
lol yep, that's this stuff. Silly me thinking it was all over the world, until I posted this picture. You can see one of those balls in the foreground at the very bottom of the picture, though it's pretty blurry there.
this is wonderful. love the colors.
Nice shot, the composition is great and the colors really stand out ! Those kelps or whatever look great, almost like some under water creature !
Great shot! Love this contrast and sharpness
super great colors!
haha thanks! They're even better in the PSD file...but alas, whenever I upload save the files to jpegs or pngs, they seem to lose about half the color range
well I don't know what its like in other parts, but where I live it ranges from dark brown to orange. Thanks for your comment though!
I love the lines in this picture, and how they come right at you. Though I wish the kelp was focused all the way up to the very front. I can't remember ever seeing kelp that bright before, it's usually more brown isn't it?
I haven't seen such an interesting shot of kelp recently. This is a great way to present it, and the feel of a rocky beach.
I actually really enjoy the middle focus instead of the front. It makes your gaze move on and want to look out at the ocean where the kelp came from.
these always remind me of the tentacles of the creatures in Independence Day (the one with Will Smith) kinda creepy stuff to find on the beach. I really like the orange undertones in this paired with the blues in the background.
haha you're totally right about the tentacles thing. I always thought they looked like tentacles when i was little. Thanks for the comments
Love it. This colours and textures work so well with each others.
I like this better than the black and white. It's very surreal like the kelp goes on forever. Definitely my favorite.
What exactly is kelp?

Great angle and use of the natural lines and curves in the photo making a lovely composition. I must say the atmosphere is a little creepy it looks from another world. It reminds me of War of the Worlds.
Nice composition. Compared to the beaches near my place, this is utterly alien
Wow, what a cool shot! It's so crisp and clear.
