I captured this passing breaker on Miami's South Beach on a cold (Miami wise) and windy Sunday morning. I was standing out in the surf and crouched down-low to get this. The image was adjusted using Apple's iPhoto including an effect called Antique. It has not been cropped. The "shearing" light across the wave's top and the way it acts to highlight the spray is something I especially cherish. Enjoy!
