It takes a shallow sandy beach, afternoon sun rays and lots of patience to capture some genuinely sparkling waves without the aid of specialized filters.
Camera: Fujifilm X-M1
Lens: Fujinon 16-50 mm f: 3.5-5.6 OIS
Focal Length: 50 mm (75 mm in 35mm equivalent)
Exposure: 1/400 sec,
Aperture: f 14
The shallow depth of the specific beach, combined with some long flat-rock formations on the surface of the bottom, cause the creation of successive waves which crush one upon the next forming spectacular triplets.
Keeping the camera level low, it took waiting the whole afternoon until the sun rays reached the proper angle to give the sparkling effect on the water.
All Photos were shot in RAW and JPG Post processed in Fujifilm Raw file Converted 2.0 EX enhancing only color saturation and contrast.
