Motuotau island masking the sunrise gave me a little longer to work with the light.
Shot on Ocean beach near leisure island and shark alley, stunning coulors in the sky gave the image a tropical punch feel.
The ocean was so calm that i was able to stand thigh deep in the water and wait for a very small wave to break, the wide angle lens makes it look bigger, the camera was about 50cm of the water surface, I use rock backs to add about 6-8kg of weight to the tripod.
Shot on a Nikon D700 with Nikkor 17-35mm lens.
Cokinn ND8 and 4 grads + warming filter.
