  1. That’s an interesting one, Jane, because there is so much going on besides the cool surfer. ๐Ÿ˜‰ the water to the left seems like a closeup, and that throws the scale off, which I love. The waves are so perfectly captured, and the stance of the surfer, everything – just wow.

    • Hi Lynn, Thank you for sharing your reactions to this image. Shooting from above created an unusual perspective – certainly for me in reality, too. I am fascinated with water patterns in general and this shot has all kinds. I am pleased you like this one- an exciting afternoon on the pier. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love how the water sparkles even in black and white.

  3. I love how the water is distinctly different in each quarter. Great shot of a surfer finding his way – I admire the surfers out here, very skilled, and the cold water doesnโ€™t stop them.
    Thanks, Jane!

  4. brilliant shot….details r crazy…love the color๐Ÿ˜œ

  5. Great vantage point for the picture. Cool!

  6. For those in other parts of the world, courtesy of Brian Wilson in 1963:

    You’d catch ’em surfin’ at Del Mar
    Ventura County line
    Santa Cruz and Trestle
    Australia’s Narabine
    All over Manhattan
    And down Doheny Way
    Everybodyโ€™s gone surfinโ€™
    Surfinโ€™ USA

    All of these places are in California, except for the obvious one in Australia.

  7. While Manhattan has no beaches, curiously there’s a Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn.

  8. Where were you when u captured that shot? Wow

  9. Great shot!! Side note: The pattern in the roiling water to the left of the frame could make an interesting photograph in itself.

  10. hi jane, wonderful picture what you post to day.
    greetings robert

  11. I assume Manhattan beach is not on the east coast?
    Surf is another discipline where young women now excel. I wonder what their great-great-grandmothers would say? ๐Ÿ™‚
    (Great shot Jane)

Love to hear what you think...
