"In the Waves." So there I was on the beach, caught away in the moment of capturing the ever-changing light. As is too often the case, my battery died. No big deal, really, so I checked my bag for a replacement. To my dismay there was no spare. Yikes. Yes, this even happens to me. Rather than sprinting to the car to find a usable battery, I decided to relax and enjoy the remainder of the fading sun with my wife. We admired the evening for about 15 minutes. As the sun disappeared, we returned to the car and packed my camera gear. Then a hint of color again cast above on the clouds and round two began. I quickly found a spare battery in the car, grabbed my gear, and sprinted down to the shore. There was no time to setup a tripod, so I simply used the tripod as a monopod, set myself up in the waves, and captured this scene. I love it when Mother Nature teases us. She always brings me a smile.
