Under The Lip
It is a new experience for me to point a camera up at the lip of a breaking wave as it is about to crash onto me and take a photograph. Without a camera it is one of my favorite places and moments to be in life. I now have a waterproof camera and will be photographing waves this summer in a quest to get precise, beautiful moments of that perfect instant when the wave topples over creating fantastic shapes, patterns and sense of energy that so few people get to see up close.
