Sea foam, ocean foam, beach foam, or spume is a type of foam created by the agitation of seawater, particularly when it contains higher concentrations of dissolved organic matter (including proteins, lignins, and lipids) derived from sources such as the offshore breakdown of algal blooms. These compounds can act as surfactants or foaming agents. As the seawater is churned by breaking waves in the surf zone adjacent to the shore, the presence of these surfactants under these turbulent conditions traps air, forming persistent bubbles which stick to each other through surface tension. Due to its low density and persistence, foam can be blown by strong on-shore winds from the beachface inland. (wikipedia)

Really interesting POV and DOF for this scene. The water looks extremely attractive and unique. Only cars are something not from this story... Well done!
Have a nice weekend!

fantastic captured this scene and effect of the water. It is your camera water proof? Seems, like it. I want not go to deep in the water. Wonderfully executed and I love the effect of sea foam. Fantastic pic. Thank you.
All the best and have a wonderful WE,

Γεια σου Βασίλη
Πρωτότυπη η ιδέα να εστιάσεις στον αφρό , πραγματικά πολύ ωραίο αποτέλεσμα.
