Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

December Fog

As my coffee brewed and the first glimpse of light began to show yesterday morning I knew I was in for a special treat. Fog filled the perfectly still air, my first clue as to the conditions of the sea. Its mornings like these that keep my excitement going, something a little different, and totally perfect. 

Have a look at the pristine surf Vero Beach enjoyed at the break of dawn yesterday. 

Its awesome to have a slight change of background from time to time, I'll take the fog any day.

Touchdown Moment. 

Fog Lines. 

This is probably my favorite image from the shoot. The surf was so calm that the reflections of the barrels were the only way to determine where the wave was actually breaking. My photos make a clearer, more distinctive look than how it was in the moment. Its good that the camera captures more than the eye. 

The sun even decided to make an appearance for a brief moment, making for some really amazing lighting. 

A perfect moment. As this barrel touches down and the pelican fly's toward shore, the lighting and ocean all came together to make one brilliant image. 

And last but not least here's a few seconds of some Slow Motion barrels from the same morning. Once the sun came out I had to play with my iPhone 6 in its WaterShot Housing. 

 

Well thank you all for visiting and enjoy your Holidays!

Vero Beach Shorebreak, Post 2.

Here is another MegaPost! Barrels from this past weekend.. I was a kid in a candy store out there.. It seemed as if every wave that came in was just perfectly shaped and had something neat to offer. 

This post will be the second of three post from the weekend. I do have some more that I can't wait to show. But, first check these out. Let me know what you think! Vero Beach is potentially one of the best spots I have shot surf at, only time will tell, it may just become my favorite spot and these photos say why. 

The above is a wide angle shot from saturday. I put that there as a comparison to the following 40mm shots I got. The difference really was in form though... The waves were good on the weekend, but perfectly shaped on Monday Morning. 

Little amounts of perfection in every wave. 


The above is yet another all time favorite. I love the color coming in from behind the wave. I think the water was super blue and when the sun hit it, it created a beautiful green. Awesome! 

Above: Form & Perfection!

The above two images are instances of Focus. I love the focus right in the barrel of the wave on the larger barrel, and the close focus on the second smaller wave. 

I'm digging this stretch of beach. I can't wait to share more! I can't wait to shoot here again.. I've gone out now a handful of times and its never been over 3ft. I know it can get better than this, and from what I hear it will get much better than this. Yay! This is going to be fun. 

Thanks so much for checking in! Please share, there's a few options below to share on different Social platforms.. :)
