‘Stitching Fillets’ was shot on a Christmas road trip from Busselton to the Sunshine Coast last December with my wife and 3 young children. I was fortunate to undertake a number fixed wing aerial shoots during the trip including this one in South Australia.
The image inspired a number of interpretations from judges at various awards. Including UFOs, ECG sensor pads or Buttons stitched to the water’s surface. I am always searching for some sort of order between the natural and manmade environments, and believe this image expresses that.
Shot in the afternoon, the fading light coupled with the deep blue of the Southern Ocean, accentuated the contrast of the sea with the colour and tone of the fish pens.
