Wave Stampede ©2013 Claudia Danforth Ward
Photographing waves is intoxicating to me. I've lived my entire life near the seashore and I also happen to be an Aquarian, so there should be no surprise that I love water - especially tidal waters. Over the years, I have photographed beaches, shorelines, surf, sand, and waves - but waves at a distance. It wasn't until our recent trip to Puerto Rico that I got up close and personal with the waves rising and crashing on the shore. I spent hours in the water capturing waves in their creation and demise, and I now think this "is what I want to do when I grow up". This is my first time out - so to speak - so some of these are a little rough around the edges, but I wanted to share them and my excitement with you ASAP. I sincerely hope you find these images as mesmorizing as I did.
