The Guardian of the Island
Mirek Galagus, Beachy Head, East Sussex, England
After several attempts at this shot, all of the elements came together the day before Christmas Eve 2015. The tide was low and the light played to my advantage. I stood waist-high in the water, bracing against the waves and trying to avoid water splashing on my camera. I managed to capture the full view with eleven vertical shots that I then merged in Photoshop.
