The Motion Of The Ocean.

Yes I am standing crotch deep in turbulent (and very cold) salt water for this shot. I am ready to yank up my +Really Right Stuff tripod at a moments notice, and I am not alone as shots like this can get a bit dangerous. It just takes a small amount of water to knock someone off balance... so please be careful when attempting shots of this nature. 

Here's my data for this shot:

Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Exposure: 0.25 sec (1/4)
Aperture: f/16
Focal Length: 25 mm
ISO Speed: 50
Exposure Bias: 0.33 EV
Flash Used: No

I hope "The Boys" were alright after this great shot. This is an impressive shot and I am glad you stayed to get it and to share your info.
+Jason Teale the boys let me know when it's time to pull my tripod up... as the next moment will result in salt water meets camera. :)

The ocean is a little angry today it just wants to do it job. But with overwhelming tides coming and going who has time to rest.

We are the Tide-our journey through the seasons of our life are so much like that of the ever traveling tides. I love this.

I have visited this pic a few times as am working on a landscape scene in one of my short stories and some how this just seems to fit-thanks for the inspiraion.
I am going to always compliment your talent and passion for it.
