Blue Lagoon by DrewHopper Blue Lagoon by DrewHopper
Valla beach - Mid North Coast - Australia NSW.

Incoming storm over the Pacific Ocean challenges me, man up against nature as I took this shot before the weather got hectic. I always feel challenged whenever a storm hits the coast, I have to be out there right amongst it. Anyway this is the calm before the storm, hope you enjoy.

Not on my screen it's not, but I'm not calibrated so who knows. Too blue for you?

It was more of a question than a statement, yes I find it too blue, probably a personal thing.

What an awesome place. I really love the blue hue of the water...really amazing. How was this taken? I'm assuming an ND filter was involved?
