“Sailboarder – Breaking Through”

A sailboarder takes advantage of the strong breeze to race along and punch through a wave as he heads out the back of the break at Nobbys Beach in Newcastle, Australia. Those three parachutes/kites are from the Kite Surfers that were also enjoying the wind conditions.

Summer 2014.

This original Digital Photograph was captured with a Canon 450D and a 55 – 250 mm lens:
F-stop: f/5.6
Exposure time: 1/2000 sec.
ISO speed: ISO-200
Exposure bias: -0.3 step
Focal length: 250 mm
WB: Sunny
Shutter Priority Mode

The border and text were added using Adobe Photoshop Elements 7.

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.
