    This doesn't really do justice to the beauty of this moment.
    Completely out of my comfort zone here - being a wide angle kind of beach bum.
    Tricky to capture the incredible fleeting orange reflections on the black volcanic sand which were gone - soaked into the coarse sand 2 seconds after this shot. & the Drama of these massive waves with their crests blowing high up into the orange sky.
    Wide angle would have lost the impact & anything longer than 105mm would have cut out the reflections on the sand.
    Unfortunately the camera doesn't do sound which was equally breathtaking - you'll just have to imagine - sorry :)

    Many Thanks for all the Comments & Faves which are always appreciated:)

      The lines are awesome! Presenting exposure-smoothened water together with the fieriness and firmness of the rest of the scene is inspired! Terrific drama!
