Open Water

    Newer Older

    I was back at Port Aransas this weekend and just in time to see some dramatic storms roll in. This one was shot early in the morning using my wide angle lens and holding the camera just above the water as a wave came in. I had to take the shot and immediately yank the camera up to avoid getting it doused with sea water. This worked for a while but after a few close calls, a soaked neck strap, and a fairly good splash across the back of the camera I got the heck out.

      Superb wave shot. The sea and the clouds together convey the power of the storm.

      Thanks everyone! I had taken several shots in this series and most had much more "crashing" action but I thought the lighting in this one really set it apart.

      one of my favorite faves! this is fabulous. Could you rotate canvas 1 degree counterclockwise (please!).

      Another great shot! Did you use an ND filter for this shot?

    16. aheatwole 99 months ago | reply

      No filters on this one. Just early morning and an overcast sky.
