Yellow

Judge - Tony Luha

yellow

Vivid and bright colours, such as yellow, automatically draw the eye and lift an image. This makes them an excellent tool for brave and bold images and photographers alike. Flowers, wildlife, the golden glow of sunshine, 'yellow' is everywhere. Train yourself to see it and show us your glowing results. Your subject can be anything you choose as long as yellow is the main colour in the image. Try to be creative with your images.  

 Subject categories: taken within the last 24 months,

THE HIDDEN BEAUTY OF SEAWEEDS

John Huisman

Curator, Western Australian Herbarium

 

seaweed 

 

To most people, the mention of seaweeds conjures up images of rotting debris piled high on the beach or slithering threateningly around bare ankles during a paddle in the shallows. Certainly, the seaweeds do not inspire the imagination or the romanticism that is usually associated with the sea, and they are rarely viewed as photogenic. However, imagine plants with blue foliage that turns red in the dark, or iridescent plants, or plants that look like rocks painted in shades of pink. There are seaweeds with the consistency of jelly, or with fronds that form an intricate mesh that rivals the best lace. These plants have evolved a startling myriad of shapes, colours and patterns, certainly worthy of the photographer’s attention.

 

Dr John Huisman undertakes taxonomic research into the Western Australian marine plants at the WA Herbarium (Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions). Over his working life, he has pursued a goal of a state-wide marine flora and he has written several books describing Australia’s tropical seaweeds.
