Use an ordinary shoreline to create etheral images from another world.
- A dSLR.
- A tripod, or at least somewhere to rest the camera.
- You can purchase neutral-density filters which block out light allowing you to achieve proper exposure with an even longer shutter speed. This allows you to use this technique in a wider range of lighting conditions, even during the middle of the day with a dense enough filter.
- A coastline with waves, or a river with significant water flow
- Something that interacts with the ocean, such as rocks
Time of day

- Setup the camera on a tripod, or put it on the ground.
- Aim it where the water level quickly changes, for instance where waves flow in through a rock gulley
