A couple of years ago I made several wave photos over on the backshore off Atlantic Rd in Gloucester - they are some of my best selling images. A gallery in Boston continues to sell the large canvas images I have printed of them. Why then has it taken me so long to get out and do more - life has gotten in the way. Work and other things have kept me from shooting my landscape stuff.
The conditions this week have been inspiring. Nice early morning light and a crisp off shore breeze (depending on where you are) combined for some images this morning. Some photog friends on Facebook have some really nice wave images so after seeing some awesome wave curls this morning early on my bike ride I went back to shoot some more. Now I shoot this stuff differently than most. I used my Canon 7D mk2 (cropped sensor) with my Canon 300 2.8 and a 1.4x extender which brings the focal length to 672mm. I was rushed for time or I would have ditched the 1.4. I only climbed down a bit to the water. The exposure was 1/2000 sec. at f4 100 ISO. Here are a few from today's shoot.
