That wave is barely a foot away from me – love the depth from a 10-20!! Don’t so much care about my forgetting to take the camera off ISO-1000 though!! But I still have to learn how to use that lens effectively.

Change the Title from “Grain” once I saw a comment from Linda – thank you Linda!

    Great work, love the textures and colour Vikram!

  • Thanks Simone – had wanted to try some 5-10sec exposure shots
    Kind of tough when your camera is saying 1/60 is fine … LOL

    Hmmm I can almost smell the ocean, such a wonderful mood! Well done!

  • Thanks Tamsin – I was sitting in the sand getting soaked with every wave (camera was held high above me)

    I like the texture of the end of the waves, it looks like foam. The color of the sand is gorgous!

  • Thank you so much Carole – the sand there is a dark yellow – it really looks lovely when the sun hits it!

    Did you get yourself a UWA? Well done! Very nice shot too ;-)

  • Thanks so much Peter – yep, got myself the same lens that you’ve been using for your awesome pics – the Sigma 10-20. It’ll take some getting used to though before I can put it to good use :-)

    Love the texture in this. The pov seems to argue that the world is round. :) Worth getting wet.

  • Thank you!! Well worth it!!

    Beautiful shot, Vikram….can almost feel the wave! Great light too. Glad you’ve got that little baby now…can’t wait to see what you find!

  • Thanks Wendi – I didn’t have an ‘almost’ about 2 sec later I was IN the wave – LOL. That lens has amazing depth – the water was barely a foot away when I took this.

    You are killing me here!!! This is so gorgeous and I’d just love to throw myself head first in there … can you tell that winter has been a bit long over here? Great shot Vikram!

  • LOL – don’t worry – you’ll be complaining about the heat soon enough!!
