Old Beach Mooring & Chains

Posted by

An old beach mooring revealed on every low tide at Snells Beach, a legacy of past times. Nothing is moored now, the last to go was a catamaran owned by a resident who recently sold his property and which is now being turned into beach houses for Aucklanders on weekends, progress ? I guess so.

My goal is to present images of objects and places as naturally as possible with minimal post processing. I think the natural qualities will come through for the viewer with a little contemplation. Unfortunately there is little time for such things these days.

Interesting detail shot. This steel rubbish is the smallest problem in our oceans unfortunatly.

@Ralf Kesper: TY Ralf, Yes, a little steel in the ocean is not so bad compared to what else is there, but my point for the image is the changing times in Snells Beach where boats are no longer moored in the Bay.

A wonderful composition. I like the rust and the chains. The little shells and grass add a lot of interest.
