Winter Surf

Taking a break from the Desert Botanical Gardens and AZ…back to Maine for a winter surf shot, the day after a major storm passed off-shore. It is way the light interacts with the water that caught my eye. I took a dozen or more shots of the surf, trying to catch what I was seeing. This is at least close.

Sony DSC H50 at 465mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/2000 @ ISO 100. Programmed auto.

Blackpoint to the right in Lightroom. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen Landscape preset. Cropped from the bottom for composition. I also had to deal, in this extreme shot, with some Chromatic Aberration showing along the out-of-focus  horizon. The Lightroom CA control took care of it easily.

    Love the color play! That blue/green color in the middle is awesome and likely all I remember about summers in Virginia Beach. Makes you think you are sitting in the sand debating the water temp and whether or not to go for it.

    Yes Amanda…but it was only about 30 degrees air temp that day…so we were not thinking of taking a dip!
