I wanted to get a colored vertical shot from this moment so had to wait for the sun to come through the clouds and light up the lighthouse and wave.
That moment occured just when i decided to leave and putting all the gear back. Always arrange your camera last, you never know what's next.
For these moments(if you want to get close), be prepared to get wet( gear too) so bring lots of cleaning clothes with you. Everytime you take a shot you have to clean the lens and an umbrella won't do you any good.
