Backlight is a very powerful tool in the art of photography. It often happens that just a simple flash settled from the right angle can show much more than a whole pack of monoblocks.
I don't understand how is it possible to live away from the sea. As for me, it's like living in a house without wondows. Unfortunately it is possible to take pictures on the Baltic sea shores only a few weeks in a year. I am left to draw the sea in Photoshop at the rest of the time.
