Photographer's Comment
I found this incredible vantage point that allowed me to overlook the crashing surf at nearly eye-level. The inherent danger, of course, was that I was risking a lot in camera equipment to take the shot. A huge wave could swamp me at any time. I kept looking over my shoulder, ready to flee the rock should the big one roll in. During my intervals on the rock I fired off rapid-bursts totalling around 150 shots in 10 minutes as the sun sank beneath the horizon illuminating the crashing waves. Of all those images only one was exactly what I was looking for, as an explosion echoed off the far rocks. I used only a polarizer to cut the coastal haze and water glare and shot every image at 1/4 seconds so the crashing waves had maximum visual impact. Captured on Fuji Velvia 50.

That is the best water shot I've ever seen so far. It's amazing. Good choice of film and perfect timing. And without any effects except polarizing and a slow shutter speed, it adds on to the fact that this is one of a kind.
