RustBody in Blue

By alansdottir  
Another from Kilve...

It's amazing what you find on the beach...

This was, I think, the rusting remains of a small car engine, though I can't be certain... It was the shapes in the rust, as well as the colours that intrigued... something about salt in the mix, I think, seems to give richer rusts.

Thank you for looking!

There's also something in the way the shape of the two top right hand pebbles mirrors the shattered engine plate. And the swiping sidelight on both the rusty plate and the pebbles brings out the colours and opposing textures perfectly.

Well spotted I'd say!

Great image I love the ragged rusty metal contrasting really well with the smoothness of the pebbles also the light is excellent.

A splash of light in the right place emphasises the contrast between the smooth stone and the rough corroding metal. Left alone, one will outlast the other........Excellent tones/textures too.

Smooth with the rough, shadow and light, manmade and natures work, full of contrasts and some great complimentary colours too.
