In the rainy morning, 21 January, I had a seascape trip as usual, but today I was quite patient and conscious as tide was so high (about 1.7 meter). Our destination today was Narrabeen, North Sydney. Only 15 minutes after taking photos, I totally wet to waist. This time I set my camera on the tripod at the maximum of its height. When I was hit with big waves, I readily stood still and firmly grasped the tripod or raised it as high as possible in order to prevent my gears from sea water.
I took this shot by capturing a seascape photographer** in the frame. Without this subject, the picture could not illustrate the challenging situation of a seascape photographer.
Fortunately, today I ran into a member of 500px.com while we took seascape photos on the same location. He is Sydney-based photographer. I'm really glad to see a new friend sharing something in common. However, I' m so sorry that I cannot remember his 500px username. If you are the man in this photo, I would like to say "thank you very much for your warm friendship. Hope to see you in the near future, my friend."
***Update (6 Feb 2012): Finally, I found my new friend. His name is Nick Fletcher. You could visit his portfolio here:500px.com/nickfletcher
