I think we all enjoyed the beauty and power of the ocean over this weekend. I, like many others, was down on the beach enjoying the huge surf and watching the brave few paddle out to ride the monsters. For those of you that missed it, here are a few pics I took of Mother Nature’s show.

Great pictures, Kevin!  Thanks for posting them.  There were some wonderful waves and spray.

These are terrific Kevin!  I’ve been playing around with shooting waves myself, and naturally on the day of the big one, was on my way to a meeting over the hill Best I could do was call Barry and scream - “Get the camera and head over to surfers beach”! as I drove by!  Sigh. 

I especially like the bottom sepia of the top set.  It looks like one of those wonderful Japanese woodblock prints.  Nicely done.    Cheri

Thanks guys! And Cheri I do most of my post production in Lightroom if you are interested. I developed a processing techique that works nicey with waves and the ocean, giving nice highlights without losing detail, strong midtones and balanced shadow detail.

These photos are fantastic. thanks for sharing them.
