That is one of the most amazing surf photos I have ever seen! It's like the water froze there.

Love it!

The simplicity, the clarity, the colors, the composition.

As a surfer, I can sit next to any body of water and sit mesmerized, for hours, watched waves. No matter how big. Mental surfing is the best form of meditation!

This photo demonstrates one of the things I love about your photography, it's always so crisp. This one is particularly good, because it gives the real feeling of movement WITHOUT any blurring. How do you take such sharp photos? Especially of something moving that much!

I just use the fastest shutter speed possible on my camera, 1/2000th of a sec.

I love action shots. Your camera must kick ass. Mine would never be able to capture something like that with such detail.

It looks all large and out of control, but the wave itself (from the left side of the shot to the right) is only about 6 inches wide. Really, really small waves rolling over on shore.

So I'm looking at this water, looking at the wave about to break and I am thinking 'That looks kind of like a clam' which is what I was going to comment, however generic that may be, but then I glanced over my shoulder at one of the pictures I've got hanging on my wall [link] and said out loud to the empty room "oh wow, it's a Rose!' and then smiled all big-like because roses are awesome.

I love what you've captured, not the foam, not the breaking of the wave, but the moment of antici..... pation. So much tension, because we can see the remnants of a wave already broken at the bottom, and the another one about to come in at the top.

Plus, you know, it looks like a rose to me, so bonus.

That's a really funky shutter speed though. O_o

On the camera, I think it's supposed to be 1/2000th of a second, not sure where the 1002 came from.

this looks great! the green color in the water doesnt look bad either. I ussualy see it as bacteria infested muddy water. this picture changed my mind i guess.

It was actually pretty colorless when I took the photo, darkening it brought out that shade of green.
