A fresh out of the oven image from a couple of days ago. Using my long 400mm lenses, with a monopod, a towel over all my gear to escape from the rain and the overspray and there you have it. It only took 2,878 images to come up with this photograph… I am actually hoping to get at least 4 out of the almost three thousand. So a few lessons out of this: first, take as many images as you can when capturing sceneries in motion like this one, even when it will cost you a lot of processing time; second, use a monopod vs. a tripod, a monopod will give you more mobility and it will increase the ability of your camera to focus greatly vs. hand handling your camera, specially with long lenses; third, get out of there, even when it does not look promising, you never know; fourth, balance in composition, try to balance your images when creating the final crop, see how the upper left corner, very dark, balances with the very light right bottom corner; balance in values, from deep black to pure white and then every value in between.
“Like a water horse, the ocean reminds me of how small we are, reminds me of our place in this planet. Its outrageous beauty; its powerful stand; its anger; its brute force; a beast that appears out of nowhere; a master of perfection in an imperfect world. I am afraid of the waves, I am in love with the waves.”
