I have been photograph Narrabeen a lot lately, one reason is it’s the most beautiful beach in Sydney, another reason is it close to home :).
This photo was taken during summer earlier this year, A dramatic sunrise with right amount of swell and tide.
In order to take a photo like this, I’d to wait the wave to treat, When the wave came in, I raise my tripod above my head then put it down once the wave passes me, quickly compose and take the photo.
I shutter speed between 1/4 to 2/3 is necessary if you want to get the silky wave effect.wave effect.

Photograph seascape during high tide and high swell can be really dangerous. But it’s my favorite time to take seascape photos. it’s the time to capture the emotion of the ocean.
The location I stood was not perfectly safe, 1 in 5 waves could get me totally wet, I had to keep my eyes on the incoming waves, move to the higher ground when there was a big wave came in. Even with doing that, an unexpected wave got my completely wet couple minutes later after this shot.
Luckily I have the raincoat to protect the camera, wader to protect myself from the sea water. 🙂
The raw file doesn’t have much of details in the center, It was almost appear to be white. But I know there must be some details, I used Luminosity Mask to bring down the highlights in the water then use CEP Detail Extractor to bring back quite a bit of the texture in the moving water.
Hope you like this one.
