I watched the waves come in for a while and really enjoyed the waterfalls over the exposed coral. The lines of the reef and incoming wave helped me see the image I wanted to create, but the incoming waves limited where we could put my tripod. Getting wet and sandy is often part of happens while creating landscape or in this case seascape images. So, here is a tip. If creating seascape images, leave your cell phone, wallet, and keys in the camera bag, and have a towel and extra pair of shorts in the van.
