Surf's up!

Surf's up ... well, either that or the meringue exploded! One day in the spring of2006 (the downunder spring -- September or October) massive winds raised some big waves off Noarlunga. I'd needed to get digital images from which a book cover could be constructed (the book is the aptly titled Storm Tide!) and we drove down to Noarlunga speedily, while the surf was pounding. This is a crop from the middle of a much larger frame, shot at the maximum telephoto range. The hardest thing about getting this picture was picking the right moment to trip the shutter. At the software level, later, the cropped-out image was enhanced for brightness, contrast and color saturation. Photo by Mel, 2006.
