G'day. One thing about being a photographer and spending as much time in the ocean as I do, is that you start to notice details, details of details even. At some point, I realised that with my camera I was able to capture details that you can't see.
Light and Water
When light, and in this case sunlight, glances off the surface of the ocean, it 'interacts' with surface ripples and creates these really interesting patterns.
There are so many variables when capturing images like this. What's the cloud cover like? What's the wind doing? Is there some haze in the air? All of this creates different moods.
