Another image from my Fires of Mordor series

Taken near Fyffes’ house, North Bay, Kaikoura, massive storm over head, not quite enough gap to let sunrise through, very powerful image none the less. Knee deep in the sea to get closer to the breaking wave, wearing my trusty fishing waders and rock bags on the tripod.

Shot on a Nikon D700 with 17-35mm lens, with Cokin ND8 grad filter. photomatrix and photoshop.
