About this Photograph

“Poseidon Awakes” is a stunning depiction of a wave crashing against the rocks. With a lighthouse on a cliff side in the distance blanketed by warm light, bringing in a stark contrast to the wave to provide a sense of scale and grandeur.

The artist has captured the unique atmosphere of this place perfectly. The intensity of the warm light creates a sense of stillness and isolation while the wave crashing against the rocks create a sense of movement and energy. With a lighthouse distant in the background, an implicit display of the power with nature is reminded, and the wave is a reminder of its beauty and danger — shaping the overall effect of both calming and invigorating.

Titled “Poseidon Awakes”, resembles a giant wave, like the one that Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, would create. The title is also a reminder of the power and beauty of the ocean.
