All phenomena of being, since time memorial, are independent of concepts and words. Concepts and words cannot transform them or separate them from their true nature.

The raw image was tweaked a bit in Capture One: crop, exposure, contrast, clarity, structure, shadow as well as some adjustment layers to the background, people, and water.

Within Perfect Effects I played around with several layers to enhance the jetty, sky, as well as the ocean.
