Great timing catching the water, it almost makes it seem as if it is levitated off of the sand. Beautiful color in the sky. How long an exposure was this?

Eddie_Yerkish December 16, 2014

Almost looks fake due to the shadowing off the rocks, very cool!

Thank you, Daniel. I wish I could tell you the shadow effect was intentional, but it was the natural setting. Thanks for taking the time to look and comment.

The outline of the wave's leading edge and the damp sand in the foreground give a surrealistically three dimensional effect. My brain is telling me the water is levitating three or four feet over the sand. I could try for decades and not catch this effect so perfectly! Very well done, this is a very unique image.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in La Jolla, California, just a short walk from Children's Pool. La Jolla offers so many beautiful scenic views and is a popular tourist destination in the San Diego area.
Time
I knew I wanted to photograph a sunset just after the sun slipped behind the horizon and I spent a good amount of time walking around the area and checking out possible locations. When I found this spot, the weather was overcast with nothing but a dreary gray sky. On my second day, I saw the cloud formations in the afternoon and felt that this would provide me with an opportunity to capture some good colors and possibly a bit of a dramatic sky. I got to my spot about an hour before sunset and just enjoyed the view. As the tide began rolling in, I wanted to add a bit more to the shot and capture a long exposure of the waves running up the sand.
Lighting
No artificial lighting was used for this shot, Mother Nature provided me with all that I needed on this day.
Equipment
This was shot with a Nikon D7100 and a Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 lens at 10mm focal length. This was shot on a tripod with a remote shutter release at f/11, 1.6 second exposure, 200 ISO and -0.7 exposure compensation.
Inspiration
I had visited La Jolla several times as it is one of my favorite places to be and even though I had seen and photographed several sunsets there, I wanted to add a long exposure element to give a different feel to the shot. I also had just gotten my 10-24mm lens and wanted to shoot with it at its widest angle to help me learn the sweet spots on the lens.
Editing
This is a three exposure image that was initially processed in Photomatix. I enjoy shooting HDR but prefer to keep the images looking a bit more on the natural side, with some exceptions, of course. I then did some minor touch ups in Photoshop, such as slightly increasing the vibrance of the orange in the sky and removing parts of the blue hue in the crashing waves.
In my camera bag
I'm a person that usually likes to be prepared if I see something I want to photograph. Nothing frustrates me more than wanting to shoot something and knowing I do not have the lens I would like to shoot it with. So I typically will keep four or five lenses with me - my 10-24mm, 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4 and my 18-105mm. I also have a Nikon D7000 with one of those lenses on it so I can grab it and shoot the moment I see something.
Feedback
I have had some people ask me why I continue going to the same spot I have photographed before and I have explained to them that the weather conditions and ambiance simply did not match my vision. Even though I monitor weather conditions, the local forecast and the tide reports, it doesn't always pan out, so you have to be willing to go back until you get the shot you want. What's the downside, having to spend another couple of days in or traveling to a spot with incredible ocean views? Beats sitting in the office if you ask me.
