Freedom by gyaban Freedom by gyaban
After checking the sun orientation, sunset and low tide times, I found a place on the coast when all of these were happening together. I wanted low tide on a long flat beach, so that the sand would create lots of reflections.

Once there, I pre-broke wooden planks, nailed them accordingly on a structure, which I buried in the sand. Then I just waited for the sun, did some jumps, and here it is.

The timing is just perfect, I mean if you were to redo the shot you'd already be dripping wet and not looking the same. And the flying wooden planks are perfect too.

Thanks a lot! In fact the ground is made of sand, full of water at low tide, which is why it is so reflective. I had to jump several times to obtain the good one ;-)
