On holiday in Cornwall I took this shot in Portreath as the tide was rapidly coming in and the late evening sun was sinking just as fast. I had to shoot quickly or risk being cut off on the rocks with the possibility of drowning. (What we do for our art eh?)
I just love the way the sun was like a spotlight on the waves capturing the gracefulness of the spray and the silhouette of the lone surfer waiting for the big one to come rolling in.
I feel the softness in the movement of the rise and fall of the water but also the urgency from the larger waves following. There is almost a painted feel to the shot which I love.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and for your support.
