One thing I look for a lot when shooting landscapes is something to frame the scene with. An image of just this beach looking out to sea would have been beautiful, but what would make it more impactful? Framing it somehow is the answer. Whether it's with trees, foliage or in this case lava rocks, the result is much more favorable to the eyes. So for this one, I found a small little cave that I could barely fit in, but crawled up into anyway and waited for the waves to wash away my footprints before taking the shot. I actually took a number of pictures here until I really liked what the water was doing to the sand. This one, with the nice little wave off in the distance was perfect for me. Hope you like it too!
