I managed to pick a wicked Saturday morning to go shooting down at Bennion Beach! I started off down at Cottesloe Beach and then saw it was high tide so I worked my way up to Trigg Beach and then settled at Bennion Beach. The surf was smashing through and the waves were coming in huge sets. Just before I captured this shot I was lining it up when a freak wave came through and covered me up to my waist, I had to hold the tripod above my head to keep it dry. I certainly felt like I was in an action movie instead of trying to capture a half decent seascape! Unfortunately there was a casualty from the wave soaking (aside from wet tracksuit pants), I lost a saftey thong, fortunately I managed to put my camera into a safe spot and then had to wade back into the water waist deep again to rescue my thong.
I certainly got a lot of weird looks from people when I crawled back up to the carpark soaking wet with camera in hand. Oh well, no pain, no gain. I certainly think the shot was worth it, hopefully you guys do as well.
What is the craziest thing you’ve done to capture a photo?
