Larry Beard's photo of Salt Creek

"Dream State" The morning this was taken had some real thumpers. Normally like a shot that is barreling over, but the wall on this is so unique. Please visit and like my Facebook/LBeard.com for updates on my latest. Aloha

Thanks all. This is one that will alway stand out in my mind. Sometimes the ocean surprises even the photog. So many elements came together that I doubt that I will ever see another photo like this. Thanks again for the comments and votes. Love this site.

Fabulous editing; great choice of colours and a surreal organic glassy feel. This should go on the cover of a scifi book.
