Close Shave

By freyjas_dad
Hi all,

This was taken at seaton beach in cornwall on a pretty rough day. It seemed that every seventh wave came racing in much further than the others.

Either this one was a rogue or I counted wrong.

The lens was at 18mm, so you can see how close it was before I whipped the camera and tripod out of the way of a potentialy catastrophic accident!

I have learnt my lesson, Thanks for looking!

Hi been there done that. I was really scared to get salt water in my Canon 5D2 and the buttons stopped working. Thankfully I saved it with some fresh water and sucking action.

Great picture BTW, you could almost say it was worth it.

Stunning shot well worth the effort the colours are excellent and I love the water movement.

Thanks for the comments and the advice everyone, going to check out the marine housing because I enjoyed taking this and will probably end up doing it again!
Beautiful image !
