The image here is of a beach rock tower that is available on Society 6 as a POD – Print on Demand – item.
This particular beach rock tower was built on the beach at Kei Mouth. I wanted a particular aesthetic for this image, which I achieved using various filters and techniques to give it a slightly washed out look, similar to the effect found on photo prints from the 1970’s.
The colours are definitely there, but are subdued. Light is emphasized on the rock faces that are directly facing the sun, creating the over-exposed facets on rocks.
Building beach Rock Towers are – for me – a really pleasing and relaxing pastime while at the beach.
I find it challenging to find the correct mix of rocks for my beach rock towers, also known as beach Zen towers.
I will always look for a flattish base rock. The other 4 or 6 rocks can be any shape – I prefer rounded shapes, as they are usually more challenging to balance. I also look for at least one rock that is a different colour and/or texture. This is to provide contrast, and as a confirmation that nothing in life, or nature, is ever flawless or perfect.
I carry this philosophy through to most of my work.
I could use flat rocks, and spend less time on the Zen towers, but that detracts from the objective – to spend time exercising dexterity and a degree of concentration.
Once the Zen beach rock tower is built, it can be photographed – this provides another challenge. This particular rock tower was built on the waterline.
Specific photos wanted were a few including the water lapping around the base. I got a few of those. I also had the beach rock tower collapse from the water washing around it, and had to re-build it.
Once the beach Zen tower is photographed, it is time to sit back, and admire it. Consume it visually. Relive the construction. Admire the shape and form created by a bunch of random rocks that were just lying around on the beach. Marvel at nature – that provides us with the physical assets, the gravity, the ability to balance random objects, and the ability to immerse oneself in the making and relishing of Nature’s bounty.
