I had the pleasure of photographing this up and coming model while on vacation in the warm weather. We decided to take photos on two different days, and at two different times during the day, each giving us very different results.
While aiming for a sunset shoot, we ended up with the sun setting in the opposite direction of the water, but still loved how the water looked foamy as the tide came in. While we were disappointed in not having a glowing backlight for sunset, we are still very happy with the results and the paler look of the water.
However much I love the first photo, the second is my favourite. For me, nothing can compare to the blue water, the sun highlights and catching the movement of an action.
