Place: Seminyak, Bali



Coral washed ashore at Seminyak, Bali

f/5.9, 1/457s, Nikon Coolpix 7900


This photo isn't new to some of you - it's my profile picture. Taken at Seminyak Beach in Bali, this is, in my opinion, my best Walk by Shooting result.

It was my first day in Bali, and I was soaking in the atmosphere, and the cleaner air (it was the haze season in Malaysia at that time), and was taking random pictures on the beach. This piece of dead coral stood out in the dark volcanic sand on the beach, which prompted the picture.

All these time since I've taken this picture, I've always been on the lookout for similar shots, but without a similarly satisfying outcome. I hope one day to be able to chance upon a similar find.

Answer for the previous post: It's the vines of the long bean plant. I just happened to notice one particular vine had this very interesting spiral, which is pretty unique, since most are frayed, and are rarely in the spiral you see.

the contrast of the volcanic sand and the white coral sure makes for a dramatic shot.
