Frozen Foam Scuplture
Lens: Pentax 15mm Camera: Pentax K311 Photo Location: Nambucca Heads ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/1500s Aperture: F5.6

Photo of ocean foam hitting a shallow beach sandbar. It's a difficult shot as you are close to the action and need a water housing to protect the camera and lens from saltwater. I waited for an overcast day to add contrast between the foam and sky, with all setting manual so I can change them to suit light and speed..cheers Hewy..
