Dreams on the seashore

On the beach, you can sometimes see amazing dreams in which long-discarded deer antlers turn into mythical animals. I had a free day in this Bay, I sat on the beach and watched the waves slowly roll on the shore. The deer I wanted to shoot wasn't there. Then I thought I could remove snags or other items on the beach. In a nearby hut, I found old deer antlers, turning them over in my hands - I realized that they looked like animals. I went to the beach, put them on the edge of the surf, and started shooting. It was quite light and to blur the water and give the photo an atmosphere I had to use an ND filter.
