Swirling Surf

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 8 June 2009 in Landscape & Rural.

These rocks remind me of islands with the surf constantly swirling about them.

Part of the Oregon Coast series.

I like the white surf created by these outcroppings of rock along the shore.
A fine, appealing image.

the white "swirls" around those rocks adds for some nice contrast and yea i think they look like islands too!

I love this composition. The way you've given the movement to the water around the rocks they almost look like enjoying a swim in the sea.

What a dreamy and superb shot! I love the how the slow shutter makes the current seem peaceful, but I know it's anything but. Superb, Steve!

The water textures looks great with this long shutter speed and with a bit of imagination it indeed looks like you're looking down on some islands!

That's exactly what they look like. I love the clarity of the detail on the rocks against the smooth windswept sea
