    did it get ya?

  • Thank you David.
    Funny you ask that.
    It tried very hard.
    The water surging to the left in the foreground hit a flat rock, and absolutely swamped the spot where I was going to take my next shot from.
    I decided not to go down there after all. LOL.

    Pretty much as good as it gets in the timing department Garth! Great comp, exposure and that green in the foreground water is magnificent. Guess you had a big smile in your dial when you saw this one pop up on the camera LCD ;-)

  • Thank you very much Jimmy, I love that green in the foreground too.
    To tell you the truth I didnt really have time to check out what I had while I was shooting it. It was sort of a “don’t take an eye off the waves” situation.
    It was keeping me on my toes a bit.

    Gorgeous indeed!
    I love how everything in the foreground is so busy, harsh and rushed, yet looking out to the horizon, everything is calm and peaceful looking.

  • Thank you very much Kylie
