Beach detail seaweed Augusta, hand printed silver gelatin
It is sculpted by small sandy bays and weathered boulders of various shapes and sizes. At its terminus is Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse looking out onto the Southern and Indian Oceans. Over the years several ships have come to grief
There is an abundance of seaweeds and small shells in this area. Hidden amongst the bays and the rocks are ocean treasures waiting to be discovered. I came across this delicate necklace like arrangement of seaweed floating in a shallow rock pool. Its almost translucent seaweed looked like it had been carefully arranged over the rock.
I have browsed through the botanical illustrations in my copy of “Walking Round in Circles”. From the drawings of seaweed it would seem that this is a deep water species called cystophora racemosa.
