Below is an excerpt from my travel blog. Cheers.

 

This photo reminds me of Mickey Mouse in the Sorcerer's Apprentice. Standing on his pedestal, sending the water crashing upwards, he was able to create a dramatic scene of waves crashing up and swirling upwards. I didn't have a sorcerer's cap on, nor did I have a magic wand, but the wind patterns were on my side that day on the sunny and vibrant Haast Beach of western New Zealand. Clouds and long exposures are a great way to create movement in your photos.
