BIG Wave Surfer! 🏄♂️🌊🌈✨
Shot from across Bondi Bay at Mackenzies Point, I didn’t even realise that I’d captured this local big wave surfer braving the massive conditions off North Bondi Rocks yesterday until I sat down at my desk in Bondi Beach to edit the images in Lightroom! True story!
I’d actually set-up my monopod and Canon 6D with an EF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6L IS lens with the intent of capturing images of the towering waves exploding over Ben Buckler and the massive swell rolling in to Bondi Beach. I hadn’t even spotted the 2-3 surfers that were out there!
The shot was zoomed in on Ben Buckler, I had it framed, focused and was so I focused on timing the waves to get them exactly where I wanted in frame, that I had no idea that I’d captured this little snapshot in time. Check out the gallery of images below and you’ll see to sequence of big wave surfer shots, as well as the original larger scale images framed as I was originally shooting for.
I’m not much of a surfer myself, however I’ve been in the ocean bodysurfing for as long as I can remember from my time as a little kid in Perth (Western Australia) to today, where I still swim daily in Bondi Beach (where the waves will allow) and soak up the thrill, the endorphins, a moment in time and joyous little shot of pure ecstasy every single time that I’m riding a wave.
Just like the ocean, I love it when my photography surprises me, it feeds me joy almost daily and brought a massive smile to my face yesterday to discover this little gem on my lens!
One Wave is all it takes. Happy Fluro Friday y’all! 🏄♂️🌊🌈✨
