This was shot with a slow shutter speed and flash during the sunrise. I didn't photoshop or alter it. It's extremely difficult to capture a wave during movement in this way, but with the correct settings and flash it is possible.
If you're interested in purchasing any of my wave images, please check out my kickstarter project that is ending very soon. This piece is available in very large print as a reward to the project.
