I love photographing water and, although I would like to try long exposure photographs of water if only I could find the time, I really like taking photographs that capture the moment.
I had a wonderful chance a couple of weeks ago of photographing the sea at Seaton. I am always trying to capture the perfect wave photograph but find it so hard. However this time the sea was quite rough and so I could see the waves forming and I took loads of photographs.
These are just some of them.
These first two are more for the beauty of sky and sea. A translucent wave and a breaking one.
Now for the evolution!
Here you can see the water as it rises up and here how it starts to tip overinto a rolling wave.Next it crashes down in a wealth of sprayonly to flow back leaving a shallow layer covered with foam. Then as the water recedes it is sucked back with the distinctive accompanying sound.Here you can see the rise, the fall and the splashing spray all in one photograph.I hope you enjoyed these views of the sea. I could stand and watch it for hours!
