The Devils Channel

darkness closes in as souls are sucked out…

I have sat on this image for some time, actually it's a series of images and in this case this is 4 portrait frames stitched together. I could not quite get the composition I wanted (at the time or in one frame) and include all the rocks so opted to take a series of shots and see how things looked after the fact.

I don't normally crop to square, however all other variations, portrait and landscape and pano just did not hit the spot.
What i did like though was the awesome colour in the low tide rocks and the slippery jet black rocks, seemingly enticing all to fall into the channel. I picked out a frame where the water flow was receding and from this angle looks like its getting sucked down a plug hole behind the rock 🙂

this channel sits just below Red Hill (named such since.. well you guessed it.. the dirt is very red 😉 ) which provides a great contrast to the bleak black rocks, but that's a image for another day.

4 images (portrait) stitched together as a pano then cropped to square.
