Figure Eight

When I was bushwalking a few weeks ago with a friend we went to The Figure Eight Pool. I wasn’t overly interested in seeing it again (Here are two photos I took when I was last there) due to how often they’re visited, but it was my friend’s first time so I didn’t mind. We’d been planning to go for a few months but it had to keep on getting pushed back, so it was nice that we got to see the rock pool before it became too risky to go out again.

There were a few people around when we went there jumping in and out of the rock pool and posing which admittedly left me feeling a strong sense of disappointment. This is a rather scenic and beautiful sight and also a habitat that is easily damaged. The pool’s water had some oily substance floating in it which likely was sunscreen coming off the people jumping into it, but need to get that photo to show that you were in the rock pool, so what does it matter if there’s a bit of harmful crap left behind?

I was trying to imply a sense of length and distance with this photo and I think that I did, but not as to what I wanted it implied with. Oh well. I’m still happy with the result.

This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s “Monochrome Madness” for this week.
I suggest checking out Leanne’s photography, as well as checking out what other people submit.

A lot of what people are submitting will likely end up here.

I hope you enjoy.
