Scream in Black

Took this shot a  number of months ago and just now realised that it looks like an old Midnight Oil album cover.

This doesn't look like it will catch on fire easily. These waves pack a punch. Lovely capture, Nev!
nev: it wasn't midnight that was the problem. thanks Martin
Excellent mono Nev, these waves are just wonderful, the choice of b&w adds a timeless side to your compo.
nev: Thanks Florence there was not much colour so going to mono was an easy choice

Liquid metal, forming a pipe...vapour helmets on the peaks, wedding veils for sea-brides.
Perhaps the most beautiful sea-scape I have seen, nev.

nev: virtual cheers mick. your pound is so much better than our banana republic dollar. i will stand by the letter box waiting for tinnies. smile
Breathtaking photography. I think this is so beautiful. Love the softness of the plumes of spray contrasting with the almost metallic sharpness of the sea. (:o)
nev: Thank you very much Rosalyn. The spray really drew me in.
What a fantastic shot. Excellent composition.

This was worth waiting for - likeyed again. So watcha screaming about - new job OK?

Question: is this a night shot?
nev: I always appreciate likeys Louis. No screaming at the new job. This was shot at around 3 o'clock in the afternoon, almost into the sun. I would have liked a night shot but were were heading home and were checking out small villages on the way home. found this large surf and a few surfers with there mates videoing them. unfortunately no good shots of the surfers in the barrels.

Exceptional image Neal - the wall of the wave looks amazing. Only slight problem for me is sharp definition on the plume furthest away - can't have everything tho can we? Mike ;o)
nev: you are right mike. At the time I couldn't really see through the viewfinder as there was a lot of light so i was pretty happy that i got a couple of keepers.
Wow! Nev! Is a very, very nice shot. I like! Great! smile
nev: cheers jose glad you like it
the spray is COOL...
nev: yeah i wish i had more time at this spot. i would have liked some more shots of these winter swells
Wowee Nev! That is a really powerful picture

Hi nice pic did you photo shop the top of the waves or is it as taken
nev: transitboy the photo is as taken. I cannot recall but i think virtually the only processing would have been levels and a mono conversion.

The ocean is my favorite place in the world. This shot is just fabulous! Moves me in so many ways! Do you sell your work? I would love a copy of this!
nev: I love the ocean as well. I am glad it evokes such emotions Helen. I have done the occasional commission for friends but mainly shoot for pleasure. i can send you a copy.
Excellent everythingsmile
nev: thanks for the excellent comment
Galloping white horses. When I was little we had day trips to the seaside and that's what my parents would call them - the breakers in the distance. I can almost see the flaring nostrils!

An image so full of vitality, so uplifting, so spectacular, it draws you in and bowls you over.
nev: wow such imagery Jose. The photo reminds me a little of the day my brother and i taught ourselves to surf in the middle of a cyclone as teenagers. cheers
Amazing shot - the waves almost look alive! You must have been very patient to get this one!
nev: To be honest ingrid i had a hard time seeing through the viewfinder as the sun was in my eyes and we had only briefly stopped to check out this fishing surfing village. thanks
Ace shot! Whatever happened to Midnight Oil?
nev: cheers dave. The broke up as the lead singer Peter Garrett went into parliament. he is currently the opposition environment minister. They get together again periodically. dont listen to mal without your vaudeville gear on.
