What a difference, in a fraction of a second ... The somewhat abstract photograph on the right is the result of a fortuitous "accident" - a strong undertow current shifting my tripod sideways during a time exposure. I was using a long shutter speed to capture a "blurred" effect in the white surf, depicting the water movement around the stationary lava rocks.  Bracketing was employed to capture proper exposure, shooting three photographs of this scene.

Now one of my favorite images of the Hawaii trip, the abstract photograph portrays the tremendous force of the sea and the relentless interplay of water, rock and sand.
