Driving around the seafront at Seaford early on an autumn morning, the view toward Maslin Beach is absolutely spectacular.
The beautiful Sellicks hills folding behind the imposing angular folds of the cliffs near Blanche Point along with the breathtaking horizontal layers of coloured sandstone, contrast against the brilliant blues and turquoise colours of the seascape.
The view is accentuated by the bright early morning sunlight and the strong dioxazine purple shadows that create this dramatic image.
In the middle foreground is Ochre Point, a nationally recognised Aboriginal site, known for its Australia-wide trade of red ochre by the Kaurna Aboriginal community…and whilst the cliffs are in shadow this point adds to the significant sense of perspective and depth.
This image reveals too, the season…as the morning clouds from the south east ensure this is a late summer or early autumn experience.
