Photo of the week

#FotodeLaSemana: Para  hacer una foto como esta  hay que ser cuidadoso, las olas revientan con fuerza sobre las rocas. Además, hay que ser paciente para encontrar el momento justo. Pero el resultado es hermoso, el contraste entre el agua en relativa calma y la fuerza de las olas es algo muy lindo de ver.      #PhotoOfTheWeek: Taking a picture like this one requires patience, the waves hit the rocks with strength and this means you need to be careful. The result is always beautiful, the contrast between the calm sea and the strength of the waves is amazing to look at.
