Clovelly Wave - Large Poster

Clovelly is a strange beach unlike any other is Sydney with it's concrete surrounds, a famous fish called Bluey and a tiny patch of sand; it attracts a dedicated following.  

On this day a rare confluence of conditions intersected to allow me to get this shot; these included a massive swell and a king tide at mid morning on new years day. The waves were hitting the sea wall and dispelling their energy upwards rather than sideways, I was entranced to see these kids (and a mum) shrouded in spray, totally enveloped but unhurt by the power of the wave. I had to get close to the action as I was using a fixed 28mm lens and as each spray hit I had to shoot then quickly whip the camera under my body as the spray descended.
