This was the first time I had used a new piece of gear, an 18-55mm lens with an extended dome port. What this means Is basically I am able to take photos of waves that are quite far away. The only reason I was able to get this shot was because of that gear. Now gear isn’t everything, it really isn’t. But it is a type of brush, that I use for my canvas to paint the pictures I see.
Capturing this was only possible because of that gear. A wave, alone at sea, with the sun shining through the clouds.
