It could also be titled cold feet... like really really cold. But I knew if I could just pull off a shot, someday, I might be happy I did...

Superb shapes and the light is exquisite… Good that you got your feet wet and cold!

What a great shot. As a geologist, I am intrigued about these granitic boulders, where is this?

The only other place in the world that I'm aware of with rocks like this is Bowlingball Beach in California, however I've never been successful shooting bowling ball beach.

Been there a couple of times now, the first time around 12 years ago and we pretty much had the whole beach to ourselves for a dawn shoot and what a great dawn it turned out to be.

Great shot by the way  :)
