Portfolios: Covers: Gold Picking, Malaysia

Photo for September 2012 (Gold Picking, Malaysia)Well, not exactly gold picking but mussels and other shellfish were on the list instead. The catch however will be worth their weight in gold as the elderly couple spent their early hours of the morning scouring the beach. After netting the sunrise and with the orange ball too contrasty to handle, I grabbed the camera from the tripod, placed it on my palm which was in turn resting on the soft sand. Focus as best as I could (I was using the manual Zeiss here) and shot them for a good 10 minutes. The patterns formed by the tide on the bottom of the frame completed the framing.Canon 5D Mark II, Carl Zeiss 28-85, Processed in Aperture and Photoshop.
