Re: The Surfer...

Hi everyone, this from a classic autumn day.



I really like this shot very much :

* the surfer is a silhouette in an elegant stance, almost like Botticelli's Venus (in a male version) rising from the waves.

* the sea looks attractive and the mountain adds a serious amount of background interest, while the spray of the waves is reflected in the cloud clinging to the cliff (jeez, I'm in an alliterating mood...)

Very nice.  Wish I'd made it.

I guess some people will have the impression that the horizon is slightly slanted, but I don't think it is: it's a play of perspective of the sea against the further piece of coastline.
