    Surfers slicing through some wild surf at Cardiff State Beach, CA. I took the shot around sunset, and I loved how the lighting illuminated the water.

    This is a beautiful surfing photograph, rich in my favourite colour, turquoise blue. The main surfer is perfectly caught, carrying a very strong pose and posture. There is so much action in the foreground. The waves are beautiful. I also love the element of depth, generated by the second surfer in the background. Amazing capture - "Wow! What an Adventure!"
