Things I love about photography: ocean shots, sunsets, and long exposures.
Things I don't love about photography: sitting somewhere uncomfortable (like perched precariously on a sharp rock), keeping the drops off my lens when it's raining sideways, and fingers so cold I have a hard time manipulating the controls on my camera.
All of the above came into play for this shot. I had no idea all of these colors were lurking under the surface. The original shot had white-balance issues, and when I corrected those, all these shades of pink emerged. Also, the water was over exposed; correcting that problem revealed surreal textures.
Maybe there should be a unicorn prancing about in the background somewhere...
