This was the beach just outside La Libertad, El Tunco to be exact, where we stopped to have breakfast during our trip to El Salvador. It had been a stormy morning and we were hoping that the rain would stop so we could enjoy our day at the beach. Things weren't looking especially promising but after I ordered my food I grabbed my tripod and wandered down to the beach for a better view. The waves were erratic, many small but some quite big and when combined with a long exposure it gave the ocean an interesting smokey view. Amongst the debris washed onto the black sand beach was this piece of wood worn down by the sand and water which became the foreground focal point and the iconic rock formation is the background is used to anchor the upper portion of the composition. I can still feel the warm water washing over my feet as a light rain fell on my face.
