Backwash

WavesFenwick 8.14.2016_0564

Small incoming waves that encounter backwash waves heading out to sea from the beach results in an explosion of water as the two meet.  A morning visit to the beach today, before scorching heat and biting flies forced me to leave early, offered an opportunity to shoot a nice back-lit exploding wave.

Scary Wave

WavesFenwick 8.5.2016_0075.2

This wave is scary to me, but not due to its size.  It was actually only about 2-3 feet in height but it was one of the first waves I shot with new underwater housing that protects my expensive DSLR camera and lens.  First day with a new toy, and trusting it to work as expected, can be a bit nerve racking when the environment is salt water waves.  But my Aqua Tech housing worked like a champ and my love of photography has gotten a terrific boost up.  In this photograph I am looking straight up the face of the wave as it just begins to break.  The perfect sky was a bonus.  I am very much looking forward to more photography in the water and further exploration of coastal Delmarva.  Thanks Aqua Tech for opening up a whole new world for me to explore with my camera.
