This morning the sunrise had a bit of color in the sky. The light in the clouds only lasted a few minutes and then daylight was upon us. Thankfully, only a few moments were needed to create this portrait as the surf was big and the tide was coming in.
There were a few times where I got splashed pretty good and had to clean the ND filter covering my lens to remove salt spray. Good thing I had on a camera vest loaded with things That might be needed like lens tissue paper, cleaning solution, remote shutter, extra battery & media card, and a selection of graduated Neutral density filters.
