I went to the Ansel Adams: Photography from the Mountains to the Sea exhibition last weekend at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, it finishes end of this month if you haven’t been. It was nice to see some of his other less famous work. His Surf Sequence shots looking down a cliff at waves breaking on a sandy beach created these lovely flat abstract images as shown here.
Which reminded me of series of images I took a few years ago whilst we were on holiday in Colombia back in 2010. We went to Tayrona National Park which had these fantastic beaches which had both black and yellow sand. I never managed to process them in a way I was completely happy with. Converted them to duo-toned B&W and boosted the contrast and I’m a lot happier with them.
