Ward Beach, Marlborough, South Island New Zealand at sunrise

Fuji S3 pro with 11-18mm Tamron lens with tripod standing on the limestone rock formations, waited for about half an hour for the right wave to create the pattern without crashing over the rocks and disturbing the tripod, I got very wet trying to get this photo (not that that is unusual, I always seem to end up getting wet in my pursuit of interesting images) I hope you like the photo.

    The way the circle of waves was captured here makes this very special. A smooth mix of warm and cool colors. Wonderful image.
