I suppose I get pretty cocky with my waders, feeling somewhat immortal out on the rocks and once in a while I am reminded the hard way that the ocean is not to be underestimated. I had my tripod set up pretty high, and the waves were no higher than my knees at their worst… but then in came a big one and soaked me and the camera. I remained calm, used my air pump to clean the spots of the lens and pulled out my towel to dry off everything else, but my camera and I clearly needed a moment to get over the abuse we were just subjected to lol. While we were licking our wounds, we possibly missed the best light of the night, but I still feel pretty great about the capture. In the end, this is a 2 shot blend. One for the sky and the other for everything else. Worth it ;-).
