Stormy

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 6 January 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

FOLLOW-UP on yesterday's shot. I have another shot of the fisherman with a fabulous foreground of driftwood and rocks. However, it doesn't have that marvelous gesture of the bent rod. And I agree with Jay Maisel, "Always go with the gesture over the graphics."

Nikon D700 1/1000 second F/9.0 ISO 400 300 mm (35mm equiv.)

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

I love to see and hear the power of the sea, so the shape, form, and movement of these waves is familiar territory for me. This is such a good capture which rolls and thunders before the eyes.
I guess it doesn't mean that much to country dwellers though.

6 Jan 2011 6:11pm

@Curly: i do believe that our connection to the sea is primordial. when we lived in southeast alaska, i was heavily into ocean kayaking. in an ocean kayak, you become one with the sea. that is a powerful experience!

Richard from Montferland, Netherlands

You can say that ;-))
