It was extremely difficult keeping the sea spray off my lens, filters and equipment. When I was finished with the shoot, even after countless wipes; each filter (lens and camera included)had a messy coating of salt spray that required thorough cleaning afterward.

Thank you, Mette!

Good evening, Kathleen! Many thanks for taking time to post! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hello Monika! The water can be very deceiving! The ocean was VERY active that morning! And the wind just carried the spray in my direction over everything! Even the inside of my truck was sprayed with salt. Slow shutter speeds are great! Thank you so much, Monika!

Hi Leanne! Thank you for telling me what you like!! Much obliged!

You are most kind to comment on my image, Wendy ! Thank you so much!

Dan...Thank you for taking time to comment so generously! Your commentary is so well received and deeply appreciated, Dan! So nice to have photographer friends who so supportive and encouragement!

Bonnie...Thank you!! But I don't think I've mastered anything quite yet... there's always room for improvement!

Thank you, Ellen! You're so sweet! Have a great weekend!

Thank you, Barbara!! I'm not understanding all these latest comments. BP has a Photo of the Day?? Where are photos of the day posted...and how does one find out about them? Thank you for your comments!! They meant the world to me!

Warren....having seen your outstanding scenics, your comment is immensely appreciated! Thanks so very much for taking the time to acknowledge my work!

I thank you, Donna! I appreciate your thoughtfulness very much!

Vladimir...my heartfelt thank you for extending your generous comment. I feel like an excited child wondering what Santa placed under the Christmas tree. Thank YOU!!

Carol...Thank you!! There was so much gunk on my equipment, didn't think that the camera would be able to "see" through it! I appreciate very much your efforts and kindness. Have a great day!

Hello Charlene! Many thanks for your kind congratulations. But how does anyone find out about a photo of the day?? I had no idea!

Greetings K!! Thank you so much! You're always so supportive!

I congratulate you on taking the time to take a great shot using all the tools you needed to get it. You are an inspiration to us all.

Is there any way to purchase a print of it suitable for framing?
