Drake Shake

By Keelo
This shot was taken very early on day two of crossing the Drake Passage between the tip of Sth America and the Antarctic Peninsula. Because of the conditions it is either called the Drake Shake or the Drake Lake, On the trip over it was definately called the Drake Shake with seas up to nine metres high (very seasick indeed. I took this shot not for the island but for the unusual light. Hope you like it.

Nice shot. If I were you I will crop half the sea so that the horizon won't be in the middle of the photo. Otherwise, it is a very beautiful picture. Well done!

I agree that light is fantastic, the whole scene is superb, and it's very nice to see ones that break the so called 'rules' Smile
