The decisive wave

Ok… sometimes you just get lucky. I was wandering around Bondi Beach in Sydney Australia on a quiet afternoon, and happened to notice a salt water swimming pool at the far end of the beach.  As I got closer, I noticed not only that the pool was empty, but that 2 young boys were standing quietly in the waterless environment.

As I was trying to figure out why they would want to remain motionless against the pool wall, a huge wave came crashing over the side. As luck would have it…..I had preset my camera exposure settings and composed the shot just before the wave surprised me.

The lesson here? It's always a good idea to get your camera settings dialed in BEFORE something happens.
Opportunity rewards those who plan ahead….and 2 young boys waiting for a wave!
