Surfer in the tube
Lens: Sigma 50-500mm Camera: Pentax K3 Photo Location: Nambucca Heads Australia ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F10 
Posted By: Chris Hewgill, 05-29-2017, 12:47 AM

A difficult shot of a surfer in a tube on a dangerous rock break wave in Australia. This action shot was taken hand held on a rock precariously perched close to the ocean, I used a method of holding my elbows together to reduce lens movement, although this lens is heavy and coupled with that I had to race to safety every now and then from exploding swells. The surfer's yellow board also highlights the colour against the wave, which is inches from rocks underneath the wave..

Very impressive capture! The action is nicely complemented by the range of deep colors in the wave.

Very nice. I always wanted to be that guy. Never got those waves on the south shore of Oahu.

I think it's amazing where you had to place your camera in order to get this shot angle.
