Sea Foam Moment

"Sea Foam Moment" is a high speed capture of an ocean wave surging over a sand berm. So many elements come into play for the foam to hit just right. It normally needs to be an extreme high tide, the right size wave, the right incline of the sand berm and certain other factors. To say the least, this is an extremely difficult shot to capture. It takes hundreds, if not thousands of photos in the right conditions to achieve this magic moment. Thanks for viewing. For more follow on FB and IG. Mahalo
