Breaking Point

June 29, 2014

I have been spending some time in the surf recently with a new waterproof camera trying to photograph that exact moment that a wave breaks.  I find this collapsing wall of water that happens in a split second of time one of nature's more fascinating and beautiful sights.  I froze the image of a wave in a photograph today.  It's a release of energy that brings tons of water crashing to the shore in a beautiful form.
