Wave at sunset

By Ig2509
Taken on a small beach near our hotel in Cyprus last month.

Shortly after taking this, I was caught by a wave that came a lot further up the beach than all the others and soaked me to the waist! Just managed to grab the tripod in time and hold it over my head! The shutter was open for a longish exposure when the wave got me and I've uploaded the result as a mod Smile

Thanks for looking and critique always welcome.

This is a great image the colour and lighting are superb,its a shame the eye is drawn to the red dot on the rocks (lens flare maybe?
I think if you cloned this out it would look a lot better.
Great shot all the same,well captured........
