Epic surf culture photography. You have captured him deeply engaged in a wistful gaze of the ocean and running visualisations through his head of what may come to pass – the meditative gaze of a timed served ‘water man’ who is hoping for a harmonious connection with energy of the sea. Such wonderful light, and a superb composition too.
Thanks morpheus71, he is very much a time served ‘water man’. Your comment makes me think I’ve nailed what I set out to do with this one. Cheers.
