Lone Surfer at Sunset

The clocks went forward on Saturday night, and now we have extra daylight in the evenings: Great for sunset surf sessions. Conditions were good; gentle offshore breeze, 3-5ft swell, and, after a grey day, the sun finally made an appearance.

SB_20140331_0063_webGotta get myself a longer lens. These were all shot on a 50mm Summicron, which is a great lens, but something like a 90mm or longer is really required for sports photography if you want to get right in the action.

Stones that look a bit like Surfboards.

Had a bit of fun on the beach the other day looking for stones that look a bit like surfboards. Mine is the brown one second from left, Hanna’s and the kid’s make up the rest. Which one do you think looks most like a surfboard?
