This photo was taken at Mahon Tidal Pool, located north of the Maroubra Beach Sydney. Mahon (or some people call it as ‘Maroubra rock pool’) is one of my most favorite location for seascape photo shooting in the early morning.

However, except for its beauty and challenge, Mahon is quite terribly dangerous in windy day with high tide. While it is impossible to replicate the fear feeling of being this location, I tried my best to capture the sea movement and a photographer's story in this shot.

You could see some clips of this pool in YouTube (e.g., Clip 1 or Clip 2)

Note:
(1) I usually carry some dry cloths and a bottle of fresh water in order to clean my lens and filters when taking seascape photos. Especially, at this location, big sea water splash surprisingly happens all the time.

(2) Lee Soft GND 0.9 (3 stops reduction) was applied in this shot.
