Headed out to my local with the camera in hand for a Sunday morning swim and shoot.

I’m finding beach breaks with small waves being surfed are a big learning curve. Being 203cm tall I don’t really need flippers for being in the right spot in today’s conditions, but then I do want to move quickly up and down the beach. I also opted for the 19mm when today I should have used the 50mm. That being said, I wore my flippers through a foot cramp and didn’t quit with them, so that’s somewhat of a progression.

Conditions weren’t ideal for photos or surfing, but the water is warm, the sun is bright and i’m loving learning more about the ocean and photographing it.
