I spent a freezing cold sunrise at Nubble Light in York, Maine this past weekend hoping for some early morning magic.  Unfortunately it was a cloudless morning, so I only got a few images of the lighthouse that I liked, which I’ll share later this week.  So since the sky wasn’t cooperating, I decided to focus on the churning water and breaking waves for some  close-up shots instead.  I really enjoy the challenge of trying to get just the right timing and exposure of a wave crashing on the rocks, which usually ends up being a lot of trial and error.  These are the days I’m forever thankful for digital cameras and large capacity memory cards.

    Love that location Steven. Too bad about the sky there but you made up for it with this image. Perfect exposure. For me the only question is how many shots I need to get to get the “right” one.

    I agree. Superb light. The rocks glisten. Just the right moment too as the water drains off the rocks.I like the new look Blog, Steven.
