Jun 4: Surfer girl

I figured that you didn't need to see another picture of Archie at Crantock, so here's a pic of an unknown surfer heading out for an evening ride. I'd been hoping to get a silhouette of a guy sitting on his board watching the waves, but before I'd reached him, he'd stood up and ruined the shot... but this girl happened along a few moments later and I got a few shots as she carried her board towards the shore. If we imagine that I shot this with my 200mm lens, we can forget the 50% crop... :-O

other sizes: small medium original

This is one of those pictures that seem to be telling a story. Great light.

I love the compressed perspective of the long lens. ;)
