    The wilderness around me is the raw coastline of the south-west of Western Australia. This part of WA is known for it's untouched beauty. To me, the clear water and pulsing swell of the southern ocean is what epitomizes the pure nature of Augusta. I used a slow shutter speed to enhance the fluidity and motion of the wave, but following its exact motion was the hard part. I took over 300 images that evening and this is the one that stood out to me.

    Great mood, wonderful use of still photography to capture the essence of nature's motions and power.
