A very low tide on this morning created a still pool that extended out to the breakers.  Every minute or so, waves would interrupt the stillness and then things would become still again.  I waited for a time where I would get 30 seconds of stillness.  The extra long exposure made things look even more still, and was made possible by a very dark circular filter.  The clouds moved a lot during the 30 seconds.  I made sure to include some solid sand and some offshore rocks and islands to anchor the image somewhat to reality!
