While camping at Two Harbors Catalina I was able to get a lot of really nice beach and ocean photos. I got a few new wide angle lenses I was playing around with including the Samyang 14mm f2.8 that I took this photo with and really love so far. Shooting beaches can be challenging and fun. You have to be really willing to get your feet wet and get a little dirty. There is just no way around it. For a lot of my shots from Two Harbors I was literally standing in the water with my tripod legs in the water. It was actually really fun and a nice break from my daily work.
This is a three shot HDR processed in Lightroom and Photomatix.
