Wow dax!!! amazing shot!! I really like the colors in the sky, and the moving waves with the man walking into the ocean makes the shot really interesting! :) #152843

Hi there. Just one thing I didn't clarify. The guy is actually a server sitting on his board but due to a wave you can not see it. I like the atmosphere it created. #676781

Very well seen for this unusual kind of beach composition. The contrast of colors between sky and sea is amazing.
The silhouette adds the human touch in the picture.
Congrats, it's a great work you show us here!

Thanks everyone for the great comments. I was lucky enough to be there at the right time and the right place. For may it looks like the man is walking but as I said before, it is a surfer sitting on his board waiting for the perfect wave that never reaches Holland. Thanks again #711572
