Rocky Ocean Front
Posted By: daacon, 03-08-2008, 01:03 PM

Here are some shots I really like. This was on the other side of the Island - pure open water. Hope you enjoy.

Before the Open Water you could snorkel there was an abundant amount of marine life in these little pools and the water was clearer that what comes out of my tap.

Some of bluest water I have ever seen

Navigation was "tricky" - a lot of those rocks were sharp

There was a bit of surf not too bad that day

Very nice shots Dave. Being right near the coast where I am situated, I am very partial to such photos.
You can almost smell the salt air in your photos!

You make me sick! How dare you tease me with pictures like this! Just kidding Dave; I love the colours of the ocean and like Bruce says, you can almost smell the salty air.

Nice series Dave. All great, but I especially like the perspective and sky in one, and the wave action of 3. Beautiful colours and contrast. Which lens did you use for these?

Thanks Ole - you are a lot closer to Mexico (Isla Mujeres) than I am highly recommended.

Wonderful shots, Dave. I like the last one especially.

BTW, in my monitor all your pictures seem to have a little blueish colour overcast, wonder if it just me or my monitor? Of course there is lots of water and sky, but still, also the rocks seem a little cold coloured?

Thanks gawan I don't remember if I added some color pop to these with PP so it was either that or my CPL which was on the Tamron.

Thanks Tuner571 - #4 is my favorite as well. There is still a lot of snow where I am now as well , but it is melting today anyway

Thanks Jer - Jimmy ! When we go to Vegas we always make it a point to drop into Margaritaville on the strip and have a frozen one. I use to like strawberry, but a couple weeks in Mexico and I grew a liking for the lime ones ..........ummmmmmmm
