After a week of non stop waves and a challenging swimming session the night before, I woke up this morning and my body just said no to a surf session.  On top of that the van had been standing for a week and needed a little run to ensure the resident rodents of Punta San Carlos don’t make my engine compartment their new home.  So I decided to grab a coffee and head down past the point to capture the action from a different angle.

I’d wanted to try a few of these angles for awhile now but always needed something to stand on to get enough hight so that I could see the waves above the foreground. Since the swell was big enough and I had the van to stand on it was the perfect opportunity. Normally when I head out shooting, I already have an idea of how I want the end product to look based on the available light and the weather conditions, for this session I had been inspired by Marc Gabor who was spending a few days in PSC and still carried around some old film cameras.  I must say I really enjoyed having another photographer who is passionate and teaming with ideas in camp, we spent much time discussing gear and photography in general. Thanks for inspiration Marc.
