Sunrise at Cola Beach, Goa, India (it’s on the west-coast so no actual sunrise – just the lovely soft light from it)

Nikon D80
Sigma 10-20 at 13mm
f/9.5 at 1/4 secs ISO 100
HiTech 0.9 Grad ND

Rocks in the far distance are where I shot Hole-in-one

    Glad you like swirling water and rocks …. there are rather a lot of them I’m afraid ;-)

    Only 1/4 sec?

  • Thank you so much Miron.
    Yep – this was the wave pulling back and not surging forward … so 1/4th was enough as it moves a lot slower pulling back.

    wow! this is fantastic Vikram what wonderful movement

  • Thanks Anthony – I shot more than a few of them and then took a break to review them when I realised that I’d get maximum impact by following the movement of the water rather than shoot from a different angle.
