“What drew me to this situation were the tempestuous tides and moody skies,” writes Juan Pinnick, a member of our Your Shot community. Using a large aperture and a relatively slow shutter speed, Pinnick waited for the waves to crash in front of him while also breaking in the background at this site near the resort village of Umhlanga Rocks in Durban, South Africa. “This was a shoot I had been looking forward to for months,” he writes.
