Water and Lifestyle Photography  

A life time of creating. 

The last month or so...

Hey Guys! 

Better to post about it later than never I guess... Here's a few shots that I have acquired from the past few weeks or so. Not sure which ones have been posted on Social Media, but its always more fun to see them on a larger screen anyways, right?! I've been meaning to post about this last month and all its swell stories but one thing has just led to another. So I finally gathered together a couple of my favorite shots and am about to tell you about them. So check it out! 

 

This is from one beautiful morning here in Vero Beach. There's nothing better than the anticipation of waling up pre-sunrise and praying that you're not getting out of bed for nothing. That first sight at the beach is either a great relief and a ton of excitement, or the just worst thing ever. This was the best thing ever. 

After getting into the water, same day as above photo, this is the reward. Perfection. 

One more from the above day. Sometimes these insiders get that foam on the face of the wave and I really like it. I'd give it a thumbs up if I could. Anyways, love the pier angle on this shot too! That was a great morning. 

 

This is Blake Speir. If you go up to Sebastian Inlet you can watch him rip waves with a ton of other Groms. They all kill it, blake especially. Behind the wave shots are tricky to get them to look right, I think this one turned out very well and I love that the guy in the background on the pier is in the middle of catching a 6ft Bull Shark... We watched as he pulled it in onto the sand and just about every surfer in the line-up began to yell, "Let It Go!!". That was rad. 

And this is where Blake gets it from, his dad David Speir.  You can find this shot featured on ESM's Hurricane Gonzalo update found at this URL: http://www.easternsurf.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=1699:gonzalo-the-giver&Itemid=109 Check it out and thanks ESM for all the support lately!

This is from one of those days that I wish would never end. It was a Sunday morning and I had just enough time to go shoot before I went to Church. I've seen glassy conditions like this only a couple of times on the ocean. The next few images will show you what I mean. 

Glass. i've done no editing to this photo, didn't need it. 

Perfect view of the Pier. 

This is the glass I'm talking about. Reflective perfection. 

gosh, take me back to this morning! 

I have so many images from this session that it was difficult to pick out which ones I should add to this blog post. I decided on these few somehow.. not sure how. It seemed like every wave that passed by me was perfect and the shots are each different and unique in their own way. I guess these few just got my attention long enough to get them here. And thankfully its not a 240+ image blog post, cause it easily could have been. 

 

This will be my last image for this post. I shot this image during Hurricane Edouard and I don't think I posted much about it on the blog yet.. sorry. Again this was just perfection in surf. I got a couple great barrel shots of Dieter Humpsch this evening also. It was all just lost in the scramble to upload the photos to the computer as fast as I can so that I have card space to get back into the water and keep shooting.

 

Its safe to say that my instagram gets the better half of my attention when it comes to updated postings. So if you don't follow me there, you should! @natehphoto 

Thanks for checking out this evenings image uploads and please feel free to share my site and blog with friends. :)
