Rising Tide

The sky explodes with color as ocean waves wash over the St. Clair Beach pylons in New Zealand.

An amazing shot Elia. The lighting, the movement in the water, and the contrast between the pilings and rest of the image make it very strong. My only minor quirk is the horizon line ebing slightly off. No doubt this was to maintain the vertical feeling in the pilings. A great shot though!

Im going to "fan girl" here for a moment and just say that watching you on the fstoppers youtube videos and hearing your story is just so inspiring! I wish I had a small fraction of the talent that you possess because I would do the same thing you and your wife did!! You both are so lucky to live your dream and have each others love and support. You are both truly an inspiration.

Another image that inspires me to take more and better photos! Was this one exposure or several blended together for the focusing?

Love this shot and this location as it's local to me. Pity that there aren't many of the pylons left now.
