Strange... I get the urge to rotate this one 90 anticlockwise

tbenedict on July 8, 2009

It's orthogonal, so almost any rotation would be fair. Oddly enough I was standing just outside the top of the frame, so from a photographer's standpoint it's rotated 180 degrees. I get the feeling I pulled it straight out of the camera in this orientation. Which would've made the camera upside-down.

Now that you've got me thinking about it, I could see both 90 degrees anti-clockwise, which would put the vegetation at the top, but put the engine upside down, and 90 degrees clockwise, which would put the water at the top and the engine upright.

I did another set of photos along this same stretch of coast that included an anchialine pond, and oriented it the way you indicated: 90 degrees anti-clockwise. I find myself leaning toward that orientation as well.

i look at this photo and it messes with my mind, yet very pleasing to my eye. It looks as though those are huge footprints in the sand?? And what is that structure (?) in the center?? I must know, please tell me!!!

The scale is a lot smaller than that. The footprints are normal size, and the structure in the center is an old and very decrepit marine engine. It's a neat feature of this beach because at different seasons it's either completely visible, as it is here, or it's completely covered by sand.
