Gold Kelp


Gold Kelp

I was attracted to this scene by the beautiful sunlight on the kelp. The backlighting gives an internal glow to the translucent kelp, and makes it appear gem-like. A polarizing filter is used to control reflections in the highlights and increase color saturation. The beach sand colors complement the color of the kelp nicely. Water highlights add interest.
