I like my camera, whatever it happens to be at the time, and I think I care it as I would any piece of equipment I use regularly. I’m not one of those photographers who treats it like a paper-thin piece of porcelain; its a camera, something I use, but I have to tell you that when it comes to salt water, I get a little nervous. I like the waves at the seawall, I enjoy the spray on my face, and the sound of the crash upon the rocks. I really love some of those amazing photos of the waves towering over the wall (I don’t like the resulting flooding though), but I am very hesitant to be anywhere near the actual water with my camera, and since I like my seascape photos to be wide, getting a good photo would mean being right up there in the spray, so for now, I’ll just keep being cautious and get the ones I’m comfortable with 🙂

My Jhandi addiction continues, I just find them visually appealing. Of course, getting a shot of them that doesn’t look like ones I’ve already taken is getting more and more difficult.
This one was a toss up between this coloured portrait oriented version and a landscape oriented BW processed one, but the coloured one appeals to me on a different level, even though I tend towards the BW because I had originally intended the landscape ones as such because of the textures and contrast in the water / foam of the sea.
I hope you like it.

It is not often that I am at the seawalls when the tide is at its highest and the waves are crashing against the sea defences, when that does happen, I usually take some photos, but seldom use any; mainly because I never seem to get one that I think stands out enough.
I think I may have gotten one that passed muster this last occasion 🙂
Crashing Waves – Georgetown Seashore
On this one I did some unusual processing (for me), I “cooled” the lower area with the rocks prior to applying the red filter, without that the details in the rocks were getting lost 🙂
