Catch a Wave by Michael John

This lone surfer, in classic surfer pose, was captured riding a wave at Cronulla Beach, NSW, Australia.

Cronulla is a popular tourist attraction and attracts many beachgoers from all over Sydney.

The title and subject for this photo was inspired by the 1963 Beach Boys song, ‘Catch a Wave’.

Canon 400D.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
