I enjoy finding turbulent places in mother nature and creating images that are serene. The ocean is a perfect spot to do just that. Long exposures can calm the explosives power of waves that bombard the shore line. Try cutting out the vastness of the ocean by zooming in and not showing the skyline. Watch for they rhythm of the waves as you compose your images, the waves won’t hit exactly the same every time but you can learn to read them enough to time your shutter release.
