A surprisingly long exposure in what seemed strong light at the edge of a long expanse of ocean.
The end of the day with a cool breeze blowing certainly makes you feel alive. As does almost getting washed off by a larger than average wave LOL.
I had been standing about 4 metres forward on the next prominent rock forward and almost was taken by surprise while setting up the tripod – again!!

Thought I had the place to myself again but when I left I drove passed a couple of fisherman just around the corner.
They asked me how many I got. I told them about 30 and their jaws dropped open. They had seen me out on the rocks mucking around and assumed I was fishing. I didn’t tell them I meant about 30 photos.
