So far I have processed 13 images I would consider 'keepers' (ie, of a sufficiently high standard that I would publish them). For a fussy shooter as indeed I am, that is an extraordinarily high number of images for a single seascape session. Usually somewhere in the vicinity of four or five images would be considered a good day's worth.
By far, the image which appeals to me the most is the following:
Some of my images from that morning created a deceiving sense of calm, when the reality is that the swell was of sufficient strength to be dangerous.
A surge such as the one depicted in this image has enough power to knock a photographer off balance, with potentially disastrous results. Every time a surge like this came crashing over the rocks, I needed to brace myself and hold my tripod down to ensure it did not move during the exposure.
The result was worth it.
