I've just been editing Len Metcalf's second article on Style, Voice and Look for the next issue (you can read his first article in the current issue of Better Photography), where he challenges us to take our safety shot and then go and do something different. Well, he'd be proud of me for some of the photos I took at Mystery Bay on our Narooma workshop earlier this year, but I don't think he'd give me many brownie points for this photo of a wonderful rock a little further up the coast.
It has become a favourite location of mine, introduced to me by the hard working Focus Photographers committee several years ago. Every time I visit, I can't help but place this rock prominently in the middle of the frame and try to fit the rest of the landscape around it.
