Hi guys i have been away from redbubble for about 2 months now, as i have been with out my camera for a while due to it getting wet just after i got this shot off..
Here is what happened..
I went to a diff spot for a shot i had in mind but the tide was to high and water was covering the jetty i wanted to shoot, so i left that spot and ended up here which was great as i have had this shot in mind for quiet a while now but every time i had been here the tide was never high enough, but it was this day..So i sat on the beach for about 10-15 mins watching the waves come in just to make sure it was safe to get to where i wanted to get my shot.
Behind where i am standing for this shot is 3 ledges about a foot high for each ledge and a few feet of flat in between like a set of 3 stairs. I was running back and fourth to the top ledge waiting for the waves to come in then run to this spot as the water was receding to get my shot..I could have stayed where i was in this shot but thought it safer to stand on higher ground as the waves came in. Any way i got this shot and i was standing on the top ledge when a i saw a slightly bigger wave coming in, it didnt concern me at all as i was high enough for the water to pass under neath where i was standing but to my surprise in stead of the wave heading straight into the beach like all the other waves this one came across the beach and hit the ledge below the one i was standing on and made a huge splash i had plenty of time to grab my camera turn around to cover it but the spray from the wave crashing went over my head and got my camera wet, a $1000 later i have my camera back as good as new..
