When we were staying at Burleigh Heads in December (last year – how weird!), the tennis player (hubby) and I set off for a walk around the Burleigh Head National Park one afternoon. I, of course, was armed with my camera. Today, I bring you a series of photos of a surfer dude that I took from quite a distance away as he waited for the right moment to jump off the rocks into the water and paddle off. There were heaps of them there doing this. In fact, they queued up, and yes I took photo’s of lots of others too! They are crazy!! I don’t recommend jumping off rocks into the sea as there is a high risk of being washed back upon the rocks! However, I am thinking (hopeful) that these guys have had lots of practice and know what they are doing! This particular guy was very patient, very watchful and very careful. He was standing there for quite some time before the right moment presented itself and he jumped in.
Anyhoo – for those of you into photography, for this series of photo’s I used my macro lens – Nikkon AF-S 105mm VR F2 8G IF-ED MICRO.
NOTE: If you’d like to see any of these images in a LARGER size – 1) click on the image (you will see a smaller version) 2) click on smaller version (you will then see image at full size)
Ciao for now,
