Surf shots
Lens: 300mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: Hickery Bay, NZ ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/1000s Aperture: F5.6 
Posted By: FruitLooPs, 01-03-2010, 11:02 PM

Went out for a surf mission with a few friends. Meant to have been large surf at Hickery bay today, and it was for sure. I'm not much of a surfer yet but took my chances for a several hours, then got out and snapped a few shots with the K20D + Tak 300 F4 preset (surf was declining lots by that point though)

Started to rain ~10mins after I started so short timeframe really. Fairly soft shots too (a long way from the actual surfers so shots are cropped)

Enjoy - I did

*P.S. I really enjoyed the pentaxian video of Mark Dimalanta seen here: *

Good ones.
As far away they are from all the action, they put the surfer in perspective to the decent swells he's riding.
Last one's a fine portrait also.

Nice series and beautiful location. Thanks for the Pentaxian link of Mark Dimalanta. Great video. I miss the surf since I'm landlocked in norther Alabama now. I'd love to see some more of your surf photos posted!
