This moment out at a secret reef in Southern California was one for the books. Armed with my trusty water housing and my 50mm lens, I embarked on what felt like a solo adventure out to an elusive slabbing wave. It was no small feat – swimming a quarter mile out to the reef, but I was determined to capture the raw power of the ocean in all its glory.


The overcast sky lent an unexpected vibrancy to the water, casting a surreal hue over the scene. As I bobbed in the water, waiting for the perfect wave, I could feel the anticipation building with each passing moment. And then, like a silent giant rising from the depths, it appeared – the heavy wave slabbed on the reef, unleashing its fury. 


With a steady hand and a racing heart, I snapped the shot, focusing on bringing out the vibrant colors of the wave while emphasizing its sheer width. In post-processing, I carefully edited the shot to enhance the natural beauty of the scene, ensuring that every detail was brought to life in vivid color.


As I emerged from the water, exhilarated and breathless, I couldn't help but feel a sense of gratitude for the opportunity to witness such raw beauty up close. That shot captured not just a wave, but a moment in time – a testament to the untamed power of the ocean and the sheer thrill of the chase.
