March 12 Rules Photo

Wave Patterns @ Golden Hour
Over at the Google+ 12 Rules of Photography community led by +Levi Moore, our monthly theme for March was patterns. In keeping with my goal to find the theme in a genre of photography I enjoy doing, I was looking for patterns in landscapes. I at first wanted the rocks to be the pattern, but in looking at the definition of pattern:
: a repeated form or design especially that is used to decorate something
: the regular and repeated way in which something happens or is done
: something that happens in a regular and repeated way
I came to the conclusion that the rocks weren't a pattern, but the waves were. As is typically the case when I'm shooting with waves I had a gazillion shots to go through to find the one that had a good number of waves and developing waves and a little drama with a wave crash. The photo was edited in Aperture (yes, still Aperture. My Lightroom migration has stalled out at the moment) and in the +Topaz Labs suite of plugins, most notably Clarity.
