Out Of The Sea

Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 3 August 2016 in Landscape & Rural.


This strange rock can be found at the Lighthouse Beach near Tacking Point Lighthouse in New South Wales, Australia. I took the photo during my series of morning escapades when we visited the region in February this year.

The tide was just beginning to rise and the waves coming through around the rock were getting bigger and bigger. I tried first to catch some of the wave action, looking for some good flow in the foreground but I just could not get the right wave. Instead I decided to go for my plan b - a long exposure.

I was much happier with this photo. Long exposure revealed some of the detail underwater in the foreground and it also gave the clouds and interesting look with their stretched out tips suggesting that the wind towards the shore was only just picking up. I am also a total sucker, as you may have discovered by now, for that misty water effect between the rocks.
