  1. Interesting photograph. I don’t know much about the sea in spite of the fact that I went across the Pacific 6 times and out to Iwo Jima and back once. The sea is a fascinating place filled with things I am absolutely dumb as an ox about. I like your photograph but am not able to talk very intelligently about Marsden Rock that you photographed.

    Thank you for coming around on Sunday at my blog.

  2. I like the way the waves turn out. It is like clouds viewed in the air in the airplane.

    I hope the rock stays there for a longer time, and not get eroded by the sea water.

  3. That is a great picture. I would rate this picture as great for framing.
    Can you give us one on a bright day and blue skys?

  5. I like how the slow shutter speed affected shot.
    The K100 is the new digital?

  6. I really like how the long exposure makes the waves appear so soft.

  7. Beautiful shot!

  8. Ditto on the long exposure … the smoothness of the waves is a great counter to the menacing skies.

  9. Fuuny title. It is a beautiful shot, as advertised!

    What number ND filter did you have to use for this 1/2 s shot? Another q if you don’t mind: is a CP really needed in these lighting conditions?

  11. It was a 2X ND filter the others were added because it was a bright day really, and I needed to get the longest possible exposure. The clouds were quite light and fluffy really!

  13. tu as aussi un pentax k100d, comme moi, c’est un bon appareil, mais je rage, car ils viennent de sortir pour le meme prix, une nouvelle version tropicalisé, anti poussiere et surtout compatible avec la prochaine generation d’objectif de chez pentax…
    Belle photo et surtout un superbe traitement, cela rend vraiment tres bien

    you have also a pentax k100d, like me, it is a good camera, but I rage, because they have just left for the same price, a new version tropicalized, anti dust and especially compatible with the next generation of objective from pentax… Beautiful photograph and especially a superb treatment, that returns really very well
