The Perfect Wave
So this is my last shot from Wembury from earlier in the week, so sorry that I uploaded 3 from the same location but I liked all of them and especially this one. I think I need to get better at choosing 1 or max 2 from anyone location at anyone time.
This one was without doubt my favorite shot, I think the fact that I zoomed in a bit more has helped here nicely and the Mew stone is much larger and clearer. I was also pleased to caputure the sun clearly in the distance to. But for me it was the foreground that I was delighted with. The wave that crashed over the rock was just perfect, although I didn't fully notice this till I was home.
Also in the end I removed a couple of surfers that were visible in the far distance as in the end I felt they were a distraction to the rest of the photo, so there were plenty of people surfing, I just took them out.
Anyway I hope you enjoy this shot, and I'm just starting to go through my next load of shots from Portland Bill and Swanage which I look forward to sharing soon :)
