Photography is a funny thing. I was at my usual beach (Lake Erie Bluffs), photographing the sunset. There was a log washed up near shore, and the waves kept crashing over it. Just as I was taking a photo I noticed a wave crash, and splash over it jumping into the sunset. This got me thinking that I might be able to plan the shot and capture a good splash.
It took a little work and a lot of shots. But I was able to watch for the larger waves rolling in and shoot a burst about the time it would crash. I got one I shot I was really happy with.
