HONOURS & JUDGE’S CHOICE – SMALL PRINTS SECTION BELMONT 16s PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB 16TH FEBRUARY 2011
I found the perfect spot today to capture the many surfers and body boarders at Nobby’s in Newcastle NSW Australia. This shot was taken beyond Nobby’s Lighthouse on the breakwall and I had a pick of the surfers in the ocean and in the harbour. This fellow was enjoying the gentle but ample swell that was constantly forming in the harbour and many of my shots made it appear that I was zooming in on top of them riding the waves … well I guess I was. This surfer put on a great performance for me and I would be more than happy to give him a copy of my images if he was to make contact.
This image was taken on the 15th January 2011 with the Nikon D90, Tamron 18-270 mm lens @ 220 mm, F6.3, 1/160, ISO 320, hand held.
