I was definitely enjoying myself even when I’m getting some shots with my camera on tripod at leeward beach. It’s like a big playground which for me to have fun around and humans were scarce there, literally. I popped on my LEE filter holder with my BIG Stopper in no time and started grabbing some long exposed shots. The conch that you see in the picture was placed there intentionally to at least fill in the foreground with something unique I found in Caribbean island. As much as I love eating Conch salad, the conch shell is so beautiful that I almost attempted to bring one home. Conch shells are everywhere around the beach but it was kind of hard to find a flawless one without any cracks.
The picture that I’m sharing was taken with 16-35mm f2.8L on 5D II, using BIG Stopper at 16mm wide. Post-processing was minimal but only a little cropping and framing to straighten the picture. I love this picture as the water blends into the white soft sand that I’m standing on and the horizon clearly defined.
