The One

About

A few photography friends of mine, who have shot Little Austinmer before, told me that it can take quite a few attempts to land a cracking good image.

I first ventured to Little Austi just a little over a week before I shot this image, and while I found it a stunning location, the sky was craptacular.

Little Austi really needs a moody sky, as well as the right kind of ocean conditions — specifically, an incoming tide and a moderate swell.

Today, all three essential elements were present.  Not only that, but an intense red sun peeked over the horizon to add a splash of colour.

On only my second visit, I landed "the one" — the image I had been seeking.

This is it.
