Rush

Posted by
Viewfinder (Bradenton, FL, United States) on 18 November 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Standing there and looking through this rock cave at the ocean beyond was a rush for me; seeing this wave coming from the other side as it dashed powerfully toward the shore then broke into white foam before my eyes (and lens) was an experience of a lifetime. A peak life experience; but then maybe I don't get out much. Heh.

Wonderful image and I can well imagine that it was a rush. When we were in that area the ocean was very calm and I would have given my eye teeth to get a shot like this. Really well done Glenn.

VERY good timing, Glenn, and it certainly must have been a rush - so much so that you didn't focus on your horizon. <big grin> I do hope your camera didn't get wet!

@Judy: Et tu, Judy? Haha.

Betty from Phillipsburg, United States

Excellent timing, Glenn! You caught the action of that wave perfectly! I can understand that it was an experience of a lifetime.

Great timing! So how wet did you get? Sea water will never dry you must first rinse in fresh water and then your clothes will dry. :)

Solid detail in the surf, Glenn. I can't answer your question about 'getting out' - but I certainly hope you make it back, soon.
