    Despite living by the sea, I've never thought about doing a shot like this. I think it's because I'm too scared to get my camera soaked with salt water! I guess I'll have to have a go though, if this is the result. Excellent shot.

  2. Intern says:

    very powerful image . love it.

  3. Joe says:

    Sweet! Howthe heck did ou keep the camera dry?

    Dramatic scene capture. The colours and textures even effected fom the water are terrific.

  13. micki says:

    There is such a feeling of power and emotion when the water is rushing ashore, and you've captured that so well here.

  14. Fabio Cabula says:

    Perfect realization

  15. Robin says:

    This is haunting.

  16. jasonspix says:

    Such a sense of motion and turbulence.

  17. Andy says:

    Thanks everyone. For those that are wondering how I kept the camera dry, the truth is that I didn't – at least not very well. The good news is that everything still works.

  18. Brendan says:

    Great use of motion color and composition

  19. Beau says:

    Cool shot. Love the moody sky and low angle.

  20. NoWords says:


  21. Andy- It's been awhile since I've been here, but this shot is excellent. The deep color of the sand and the texture of the ripples make the shot so cool.

  22. Grant says:

    That is such a refreshing shot! Hope the rather ominous looking sky doesn't mean your camera got soaked…

  23. Power in nature, … and plenty of power with this image.
    This is excellent, and you used a perspective to show all of that power to its fullest!

  24. I really like the contrasting diagonals and mood in the sky. Conveys motion and power of nature well.

  25. zap says:

    nice shot

  26. Rob says:

    What a brilliant shot! A unique angle and the colours are excellent, great work

  27. Very nice photo.

  28. birgit says:

  29. Daniel James says:

    Excellent image. Lots of power and mood present here. Great work!

  30. om says:

    Effective action shot. good contrasts. good perspective.

  31. Which is more powerful? Awesome sky!! fantastic detail! **Applause**!!!

  32. Jac says:

    A heartstopping image, Andy. Really draws me in. The forced perspective I guess does that and the leaden sky adds to the sense that there really is no escaping the power of nature. I salute your awesome talent. Your video tutorials really made me see how I am just scraping the surface of photoshop – you are a master – kudos to you.
