sea fever

I must down go to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying. ~ John Masefield, Sea Fever

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wanderlust

water painting (2 images)

Yesterday morning I enjoyed a beautifully mild, breezy wander at the beach. I decided to try experimenting with my 6-stop ND filter and different shutter speeds to see what effect it would have on the appearance of the water. By changing my lens’s aperture, I ended up with a 1.3 second exposure for the top photo, and a .6 second exposure for the bottom.  Do you have a preference?
