Surfing Storm Brian – Description
A beautiful colour print from my collection. This photograph (Surfing Storm Brian) was captured during the morning of October 22nd, 2017 as Storm Brian battered the UK. A lone surfer attempts to ride the waves at Bournemouth Beach to the backdrop of the breaking storm clouds. This print is reproduced on thick glossy photographic paper and mounted within a white coloured Mount Board, sealed in cellophane and ready for framing. The photograph beautifully captures the contrast of the dark grey/blue ocean against the strength of the sun breaking through a brief break in the clouds.
The photograph was taken During the Storm “Brian” in October 2017 at Bournemouth Beach. The lone surfer daring the storm. The mount board measures 12” x 10” (300mm x 255mm) with the aperture for the photograph measuring 9.5” x 7.5” (245mm x 195mm).
Ready to Frame.
Making the most of the stormy weather – Storm Brian October 22nd 2017.
Not my usual photography day however, storms don’t come around that often. I was opportunistic and drove down to Bournemouth very early in the morning to capture the storm breaking over some great monument but alas, most of the coastal areas I had in mind were ‘off-limits’ and so I ended up in Bournemouth drinking early morning coffee. Thats when I was in awe at the lone surfer making the most of the high winds and surf.
A change of lens, wet feet and the sun shone briefly, allowing this photo to be taken. I came away pleased with myself at the timing, just when I had given up and about to drive home.
Post processing allowed the richness of colours to be enhanced thus proving that rich warm feeling.
I hope you enjoy this image as much as I do, comments always welcome.
