Surreal Ocean

Surreal Ocean

This place has rarely been seen because it is not generally accessible when the tide is a bit high (not necessarily to be the highest tide).

We raced against time in order to make our shots in this location: We waited until the tide was really low to get there, and had to get out of there before the tide raised high. It was a full moon night, the rock stacks were lit by moonlight coming behind us.

This photo has been selected to the finalist of the 2014 Australian Geographic ANZANG Nature Photographer of the Year.
