  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!

  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.

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

  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)
