"Catching The Last Wave"
©David A. Ziser
I headed to Javier's Restaurant ahead of the others to get a ringside seat for the evening's light display. I was not disappointed. Although not spectacular, the sunset was still a beautiful display of color over the Sea Of Cortez.
I had made several images, ranging my exposure and crops for various renditions of the scene. I got several keepers but this one was one of my favorites. Just as I was about to make an exposure, I saw a young boy carrying a surf board running into the bottom corner of the camera frame. I decided to wait a split second more till he was more prominently positioned in the frame. There was the shot - hit the shutter and I knew I had image I wanted.
Into ACR for a little tweaking of the colors. Sometimes timing is everything.
Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted with 18-200mm IS lens at 40mm, F4.5 @ 1/80 second, ISO 250. Enjoy! -David
