As soon as I came across this scene I visualized a composition similar to the classic Death Valley imagery of Racetrack Playa.

This morning I grabbed my mirrorless Canon camera, fumbled with manual settings and shot 2 frames before my lone battery died. I didn’t have enough reaction time to turn the image stabilization on but was fortunate to get a sharp shot at 1/13 of a second.

It took me 2 or 3 mornings of sunrise scouting this beach to find light and composition that worked for me. Thankfully the beach was only a few minutes from where Lisa and I were staying!
The channel of incoming water in the lower left of the frame grew after every shot as low tide wained. I chose this as my final composition due to the channel’s leading line.
