It doesn't get any more spectacular than that - Wow! I especially like the translucent color in the water, and the intensity of the sunlight on the foam -

the snow in the alps is beautiful, but the translucency of the ocean water the way you capture it here beats this beauty any time!

Just a beautiful job catching the sea green waves and the light shining through them the reflected light on the foam and drops, and the contrasts of all of that versus the dark background and then the orange sky. This composition is as masterful as any I have seen from your hand. Absolutely fantastic, Maria!!

I just look at your website, I saw you and you like Romanian painting. Now I understand a little your way of photographing, I always thought you had your picture composition and painting. If you paint so well as photos, congratulations you are a true artist.
