This image was taken just a few minutes after sunrise. It was the beginning of an outgoing high tide. The wind pushed waves were a little higher than normal due to wind due to a tropical system impacting the area and a full moon approaching. The site is at the south end of the parking area for Marineland and the shoreline is interspersed with coquina rocks which makes for a great foreground. I used a Pentax K-3ii with a Pentax DA 16-50 F2.8 wide angle lens. My settings were F/11 with a shutterspeed of 1/2 second and a focal length of 29mm. I used a Tiffen 77mm circular polarizer together with a Tiffen graduated neutral density filter. There were several clouds which helped give a moody look to the scene.
