Boats and waves

A quick stop at the fishing boats, where I photographed primarily texture to use in my photomontages. But across the way, the yellow fishing vessel Desire gleamed brightly against a cloudy grey sky. And then on the way home, we stopped at Seal Rock because the lighting was so dramatic and the waves were really snarly. I used a quarter-second exposure to create these two shots. They're not sweeps nor swipes nor swoops -- they're swirls. I swirled the camera in a circular pattern during the exposure. It's been a good day. ©Carol Leigh

Thanks, Marianne. The waves were pretty swirly anyway, I just helped 'em along a bit. Yup, that's me, always there for Mother Nature. :-) --CL
