A Silent Surf


he scene was set one fine Sunday in April.

A quiet beach, the sea breeze and morning swells, the night sky, the crisp morning. Fingers clicked, moments were taken and smiles of acknowledgment passed between friends.

We spent a quarter of the day at the winsome Whale Beach two weekends ago but it sure felt like forever.

This was one day trip to remember.

This day changed me as a photographer. I took circa 500 shots in 6 hours, from all angles and went through the painstaking process of culling them to my favorites. I’m quite proud of these shots, all of which I’ve taken with the exception of the first shot which was taken by a friend while I was parking the car. I never used to worry about post processing shots as much as I have now, coming from an “apply a filter” background. Even though the edited pics were pretty light on in terms of what I changed, the process of editing was still painstaking, torturous and slow. The rewards were incredible though and I am very happy with the results! 

Here’s to another chapter in my evolution as a photographer.
