Kimberly Colours

The contrast of the blue sky and ocean and the red of the road. The difference between the colours really divides the photo into to parts. The photo really captures the very iconic blueness of both the sky and the red dust of the ground. The photo was taken on the 13th August 2012. The photo has both big aspects of both the structural frame and the cultural frame because the photo structure is the fact that it doesn't follow the rule of thirds but the photo is almost split in half. The cultural side is, what Western Australia looks like.
