Another balmy August afternoon (15/8/09) what better way to recuperate from surgery but to go and sit on the beach. I thoroughly recommend it as good therapy and R&R.

As I sat and watched the waves build, curl and roll, I saw this young surfer with his surfboard tucked under his arm, gingerly walk over the rocks near the canoe pool on Newcastle Beach in NSW Australia, stand for awhile to assess the scene and then with great care, launched himself into the waves that were building just off this rock ledge. With grace and speed he was soon out the back and riding high.

This image was taken using a Nikon D80, 55-200 mm lens and was hand held.

I love the challenge of capturing what I see, admire and love. To share it with you is an added bonus. Photography to me is recording history. Please explore my galleries and enjoy♥

  • Thanks Deb – they do make it look easy especially those who know what they are doing! I sat the other day watching a young lady learning to use a surf ski and it was amazing how determined she was to master it. I always appreciate your feedback!
