The inter-tidal zone has many photographic opportunities. You will need to look carefully at your local area. Permanent structures and features such as rocks in the zone will have many marine creatures and possibly plants on them. Photos can aim to show the area of coverage while closer shots show the density of living things. Features of interest can include:
- Pylons with living creatures on them. A ruler that shows how far from the top of the pylon the organisms survive is very useful. Close-up photos of the density and kinds of organisms can also be taken. Obviously these photos can only be taken at low tide.
- Monthly photos of the material washed up onto the beach provided it is not removed by a beach tractor. Take wide sweeping photos and close-up photos of beach material.
