Sunspots - A wave crashing in front of the setting sun

This is an abstract of water from a crashing wave falling in front of the setting sun. It’s an attempt of an idea that I’ve had in mind for quite a while and finally had a chance to attempt.

I didn’t succeed at my idea, but this image encapsulates my experience of watching that water fall in front of the sun and exploring that with my camera. And that’s enough for me.

This is very cool. Great idea and excellent work capturing it.

This is wonderfully creative and while not a total success, I think it is representative of a powerful photographic philosophy. Real cool stuff man
I think the title ‘Sunspots’ is very fitting.

Great photo! Well done.


Very cool and very unique. I’d say keep up with the concept! You’re on to something!
