The rain finally stopped after two days, but the heavy clouds stayed for the whole afternoon. I know I would get dramatic show by the lake, so I drove to the Mclain State Park hoping to get some wave action. But I still underestimated what the nature has to ofter. After I saw what happened by the breaker, I finally understand the real meaning of "extreame weather offers good photo opportunity". After 20 minutes of shooting, my whole body was wet and my face hurt because of the flying sand. I packed my equipment and decided to head back to my car, but at that moment, I saw this surfer walking toward me, I knew instantly he would make a huge plus to the already dramatic backdrop. So I set up my tripod again and adjust my camera for the perfect composition, and all that left is to wait for him to walk into my frame.
