The first storm of the rainy season arrived early this year. So I went out looking for some good light to go along with the low tide. The storm caused the water in the river here, which is normally a pond for most of the year, to overflow the sandbar on the beach and flow to the sea.
I watched the action for a while, and composed this scene. When the sun dropped under the cloud deck the beach was lit well. I decided to add in some of the foam that was floating about. I like how it painted the foreground for me as it wrapped around the rock.
2 second exposure @F16 with ND grad 0.9
Despite the long exposure, as the water moved, the riples stayed in the same place. So no detail was lost in the water. So it is an interesting combination of movement.
