From the Deep!

By rhiw_com  
Took this night before last at a cove that I'd never been to before. An awkward place to get to, but the venue is a cracker, full of fantastic rock formations. I called this "From the Deep" as the light catching the breaking wave looks like some monsters claw emerging from the sea!

F18, 1/3 sec, Lens @ 12 mm, ISO 160, ND grad filter.

Hope you like it and please view...LARGE...if you can.

Many thanks for your comments on my last upload.

Regards to you all, Tony

Well worth the effort. Not only is the venue a cracker but the image is as well. Very dramatic and great light. I see what you mean about the breaking waves.

Great movement - I thougt I was going to get my feet wet. The sunset is equalled by a dramatic sky and the reflection on the breaking wave just adds that little bit of extra class - click!

Taken at just the right moment with that advancing wave. The water has picked up the light so well as though it is illuminated from within. Great quality.
