Foto Friday: W-W-W-WIPEOUT!
Since last week's FF was AWOL, today's FF will be in fabulous QuadroVision!
These pictures were taken at Ho'okipa Beach Park in May of this year. They're hand-held shots using a 70-200mm zoom at 200mm, so they're not the sharpest pictures in the world.
However, I am now convinced I need a longer lens, so I may capture the stark terror of man meeting ocean at high speed.
Next, a beautiful spray. Several surfers fishtailed their boards, presumably to achieve just this effect. I began to "help" them with my camera, "pushing" them up with the lens when they started to fall. I don't think this works. But it didn't ruin the photos, like I thought it would.
I'm not entirely sure what this man is up to. He's either performing an amazing gymnastic feat, or he's half a second from falling on his can. Possibly both. Nice spray, though.
Pictures almost as nice as mine here.
(This FF was delayed while I spent about fifty flippin' hours getting the image/text alignment right. There's still more space between the images than I want, but to hell with it. Interested/frustrated parties may read the six-year-old solution here. Look for the answer by "Birdman".)
