North Beach, Perth.

I broke my 6-month-old Manfrotto tripod taking this… Gutted but delighted with the shot.

3 shots merged (not HDR) with minor adjustments in PS CS4.0.

Nikon D80, 3 seconds at F11 using 2x+9 (one hard one soft) Lee Grads with a circular polariser.

    Back at our favourite spot I see young man !!!!…Well I must say I think you nailed this……that break in the rock really does lead the eye….Great shot Richard…:)

  • HAHA! Mate, you’d have been proud of me… I had to virtually crawl on the sand to get the low-level and a wave hit me from my left, I had to pin the tripod down to stop from falling onto the sharp rocks and the Manfrotto made this awful ‘crack!’

    LOL, howz that… I introduce you to Red Bubble and here you are featuring my photos!! Cheers mate :)
