"Tropical Tundra"

I probably should post the series of photos in order but alas. This was the 2nd keeper of the afternoon. As the sun dropped at my other spot I literally grabbed my pack and tripod and ran down the rocks to the end where I saw the first thing that looked good and plopped my gear and and composed as quickly as I could. My friends watching from behind probably got a pretty funny show. This spot is only accessible during small surf as it can be very dangerous.

All in all the success of the shot is something that I teach my clients all the time. Composition is something that can be learned and therefore once we have the 'formula' down it becomes much easier to literally run up to a spot and photograph in less than 5 min. Of course having places like this in your backyard help :p But for those photogs out there...learn WHY photographs work, then learn to see that when shooting.

Oh yea, the title comes from the ice-looking environment caused by the salt on the rocks :)

16-36 II, 3stop RevGrad, blend for rocks top left and sun area.

Thanks!

that is one wicked foreground, great bold shapes and lines... lovely texture/movement on the water too. foreground white balance feels a little on the cool side - creative processing decision to complement the 'ice-looking environment'?

No creative processing. All natural colors/light/etc. Same as always.
