This shot was taken one afternoon when there was not a breath of wind and about one foot of swell. I walked out until i was about chest deep, just inline with where the waves were breaking so i could try and shoot down these mini barrels.
When a big set came through where i was standing, i had to lift my camera with my 400mm lense above my head and jump up in the air so my gear didn’t get wet.
This turned out to be a amazing afternoon with the colours in the sunset as you can see in a few of the other pics, “Sunset Tsunami” and “Sunset Waves”.
