Travelers Tips and Stories about Ocean

Blood moons, Perseids, eclipses. I am more than happy to witness our Galaxy’s expressions in this lifetime. At the same time, I have been chasing that shot of the night sky. I know that I am a newbie when it comes to this, but I guess it’s all about timing. Visiting my home country this year I had high hopes and high goals. Last night’s attempt on the Perseids meteor shower was a feeble attempt. Tonight though, the result was otherworldly. Seeing the Milky way with a naked eye, I could only imagine what that would mean moments later in Lightroom.
By Henrik Dønnestad It came with a wave, and washed slowly ashore. Exactly what is it I crave, beneath this ocean floor? It comes in waves, and so I held my breath. But this despair enslaves and I remembered death. Sky and ocean rising; And in full living colour became a fine horizon. What beauty to discover. It was never down there, it was always up here.
The 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria is truly a sight to behold. This stunning section of coastline, boasting monoliths protruding from the ocean, is often overcrowded with tourists. I was very fortunate to arrive as the sun was setting and captured some magical shots.
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach, waiting for a gift from the sea. Read Bali travelogue here: https://www.roadtripwithraj.com/on-the-road/2018/9/21/when-the-world-has-broken-me-down-bali-sets-me-free
My style of photography is different. I have combined my love of soft focus, shallow depth of field, the water &the colour blue to come up with this series of photos. This photo was taken waist deep in the water with a wave nearly completely taking out my camera as I held it near the surface. The bigger the risk the better the result.
This photo was taken at the beach in my hometown. I love this place for both aesthetic and sentimental reasons. The ocean at sunset is my absolute favourite and this shot is no different. The bokeh is a result of a wave splashing with the glow from the setting sun hitting the surface. Magic.
