Surf’s up !
There has been some really great waves around of recent. Here’s a couple of shots from a few weeks ago when we had a really nice early spring day in the mid-high 20’s. The swell was up, winds offshore ( a bit too strong ideally) and the weather warmer at last !
These were shot on the 5D2 with pretty crappy old 75-300mm USM lens which annoys me for sharpness ( or lack of ) in particular, so hence I rarely use it and I would really like a nice sharp lens in the 200-400mm range. The shots are basically resized straight from the camera as I didn’t have much motivation for editing them. I also shot some HD video this day too that I edited up which I may post another day. I really dig it as at one point at one of the breaks there was a Southern Right whale cruising by about 50m from the triple head high barrels – SWEET !
