Ever had one of those shots that just took forever to get it right? No editing...just the perfected shot, and maybe a description of what made it hard.

Taken: Tuesday, 15th February, 2011
Focal length: 5 mm
Shutter speed: 1/158 sec
Aperture: F3.3
ISO: 50
Notes: The most difficult shot due to it's being through two holes in coquina. This shot was not possible if not for the shallowness of the water. Plus, even wearing jeans was tough due to kneeling on barnacles on the rocks.
