I have been trying for along time to get the wave hitting the beach. This time I was so close that next time I will wear my wet suit.The water is very cold it is our winter. To get this shot me and the camera bag went swimming but I saved the camera from gettind wet.

tres bonne idée bien réalisée avec une lumière sympa.
le mouvement est parfaitement figé.

Gorgeous. I love the warm colours, the shadows, and the fast shutter froze time beautifully. Wow.

la mer comme on n'a pas l'habitude la photographier
pridel (233) 2004-07-13 5:47
Oui très bien fait ! C'est la première fois que je voie une petite vague aussi grosse. Le rendu est excellent. félicitations.
sengir (4956) 2004-07-13 8:30
great idea, perfect timing
fapmap (250) 2004-07-13 9:27
Very creative idea... and it worked superbly (the speed as well set to capture the drops, the moment perfectly captured and the DOF excellent). Can't believe you did not kill your camera.
Japie (72) 2004-07-13 10:34
Wow - Looking at this photo and others you have taken, you belong on the beach taking pictures of the waves - Just mind the camera. Excellent timing and DOF
bartove (2861) 2004-07-13 10:54
Excellent timing, creative and interesting. First i thout that this is a shark.
Catli (550) 2004-07-27 14:09
I've been used to see your pictures of great powerful waves and this one is totally unexpected and yet delightful. I love it.
sohrab (7439) 2004-08-02 3:25
wow in the thumbnail it looks like an open mouth of a great white shark and i love great white sharks. great photograph

je choisis cette photo pour l'écume qui ressemble à du Corail, mais toutes vos photos sont splendides. vous avez un vrai talent. (Pro ?)
natc (315) 2004-09-22 3:15
wonderful! at first in the thumbnail I thought it was an octopus :)
i'm really impressed by all your waves shots, go on, it's great.
zilinskyi (493) 2004-11-09 14:44
Phantastic shot. You don't need a better one - keep dry.
Albrecht (11281) 2005-10-16 4:17

that looks like beer... sweet, sweet beer, rolling onto the shore. we would then REALY be the lucky country. great shot!
david (3992) 2006-04-25 2:27
that's a brilliant shot richard ... and a great reward for your efforts. i can see what you were lookng at here. that small ledge curls the foam as it hits the beach. it looks really good in the sunlight.
if you try this shot again, do so earlier in the day when it's brighter. i think you'd get a great effect without the shadows.
either way, brilliant shot. well done!
roconnell (327) 2006-05-28 23:08
Fantastic. The shapes and warme tones are wonderful. Your timing and perserverence are great. Well done. Had to come back because on the re-visit the first words were " Holy Smokes" - in a good way mind you.
joeydrops (2659) 2006-05-30 7:55
Wow, this is a fabulous shot!!! You've done an extremely good job here, capturing this superb wave action as it comes hitting against the beach. Lovely lighting and colours too. Really well captured! You've got a lot of awesome wave shots!
genem (303) 2006-06-06 2:35
Very interesting and non standard image
the light shadows and lines are great
sortep (483) 2006-07-09 9:04
Fantastic shots Dick.
I am in Melbourne and I have taken different shots like yours. I enjoy the Aussie landscape.
Dari (24) 2006-07-18 2:36
One of your most beautiful works, Richard. Amazing shape, splashes, foam... Great one! I always wondered about your ways to save lens dry...you must be wizard! The way you catching waves in the most wonderful shapes makes me think you are somekind of mermaid! (ooops dunno how to name male mermaid on English :))
leiju (1697) 2006-07-23 21:13
Mind blowingly magnificent! What else is there to say?
If I were to get painfully picky, I'd say that the picture ought to show a bit more to the left but woah! It is so impressive! Amazing!

lappino (856) 2006-08-28 1:53
I can notice your "style"...
This time the "sand shark" almost got a good bite of you...but, judging by this result, it was worth it! Excellent shot, thanks for sharing!
Ulishna (2268) 2006-09-02 14:59
it's excellent moment. Inimitable and brilliant...
Lynette (1615) 2006-09-13 5:44
Hi Richard, another shot so amazingly captured. I am trying to learn these techniques please explain to me.
An excellent pov and an original beach shot. Well timed, good colours and composition. Full : )'s. take care.
sebcz (2345) 2006-09-13 5:46
It takes mastery to take such a shot. I must learn a lot...
nels (2623) 2006-09-14 10:45
hi richard,, awsome shot!! worth getting wet for the slow shutter speed has given you a stunning outcome
one to add to my favorites
cdricks (92) 2006-09-18 7:46
superbe prise et cette illusion d'un requin o second plan c d'une pure magie le hasard d'une prise en mouvement enifn moi je vot bien cet gueule de requin comme devorant la plage .
fjufju (335) 2006-10-20 8:17
what a fantastic gallery of waves! Excellent pictures. This one is one of my favorites.
onealjw (21) 2006-10-28 0:44
Remarkable photo. Shows dedication getting the shot too! Fantastic lighting.

superbe prise instantanée
devimeuxbe (58557) 2006-11-15 7:16
You are the best photographer of the waves. It's beautifull and the sharpness here is incredible. The light also.
jean11-3 (2799) 2007-02-20 15:02
Hi Richard,I have just discovered this beauty,what an incredible wave!
The range of colours is amazing.
There is so much to see in the wave;I like the contrast between the movement of the wave and the solid sand of the beach.
Best wishes Jean.
jdwyer264 (1082) 2007-05-14 7:41
A truly magnificent capture, the shape the wave has taken is incredible.
The droplet which creates the eye is superb.
One of the most impressive captures I have seen on here. well done.
ilghiz (708) 2007-05-27 19:52
An wonderful ıdea to shoot a 'macro' of a wave! The lighting's good: devides the picture into two and helps convey volume (though not successfully at some points, but thats my opinion only)... The mixture of the foam and the sand makes it lok like coffee foam.

matt_moi (318) 2008-01-30 6:46
Hi Richard !
Your shot is amazing. Just the prefect time and the light just on the "mouth" is excellent.
It gives me ideas...
totoamoto (1569) 2008-03-05 23:43
Re salut Richard..
Grandiose, magique.. etc...
Quelle netteté, j'imagine bien ta position allongé pour prendre cette image..
Le résultat est très réussi..
ikozturk (77) 2010-07-15 2:24
But it is worth for getting wet because you had done a very interesting shot that no one can hoave this chance. That looks like really shark teeth and before I opened the bigger image I thought it was a real shark
AnaRita (1741) 2010-07-15 3:18
Wonderful detail. When I saw the thumbnail I wasn't really sure what the photo was going to show.
The light hitting the shark's mouth is also magnificent.
Fantastic job ;). Congratulations and thank you so much for sharing,
