From Suck To Blow by aFeinPhoto-com From Suck To Blow by aFeinPhoto-com
This spot has been on my 'to shoot' list for quite some time. And by that I mean about 2-3 years. I scouted it once on a different session a ways back but just haven't gone back...til Halloween '11. Spooky indeed.

Having set my alarm to go shoot a location on the east side my body didn't decided to wake up til the alarm was turning OFF!! Yikes! With not enough time to drive I quickly had to make a plan B. I quickly pulled up my Photographer's Ephemeris (MUST HAVE APP!) and realized the sun would be just a the edge of my composition limits for this spot. And off we go.

The road down to here....mostly fine...until the end where I constantly heard myself saying "what are you doing, how are you going to get back" (not 4wd car). Doesn't matter...get to location and figure it out.

Now this spot while incredible offers a series of serious challenges. To get the amount of water necessary for the waterfall/hole effect the waves need to be big enough. And second the trade winds blow AT you. Fun.

Another thing you might notice is that this is shot at 16mm...which, might be kinda dumb if I wasn't paying attention. Who needs coffee at 630am when you have LARGE waves to wake you up.

I was anchored in as much as I could to my spot, composition was on (notice rocks/lines as visual leaders) and then the bigger waves started coming in. Yea, grab the tripod and scurry! Which is problematic because I want more water falling in in the back left side.

Alas the best photo of the morning was this one just before the sun poked up but I will be back for sure...and hopefully with a spotter (read: person holding me with a rope attached).

THANKS!

Amazing scenery and perfectly captured! It must have been also difficult not to get motion blur in the photo with so much wind blowing against you and waves hitting the tripod:)

Awesome in every way. I think if I were there I wouldn't settle for less than a full harness dynabolted into the rocks. You'd be real brave to settle for just a guy with a rope.
