Painted By The Sunset

For a few days I had been watching the top section of a reef as perfect, tiny waves have peeled off as if they were made by a machine. The only catch to photographing them was the fact that they were breaking on a live coral reef in shin deep water.


Late one afternoon I decided to get a little experimental with a lens setup I would never normally consider using in the water. I slowed the shutter speeds right down and literally dry docked myself to photograph these amazing little waves. It takes a fair amount of patience to photograph this way as getting the amount of blur just right to create the painted effect is tricky, but when you do I think it looks pretty special.
