“Storm Clouds” by Sarah Lee

So many people are focused on the surf action above the water … do you ever wonder what happens below from a fishes’ eye view? Here’s a view “under the clouds” as a local female surfer duck-dives through a turbulent wave off the Kona coast of the Big Island of Hawai’i. This photograph was taken with a Canon 7D and Canon 15mm f/2.8 lens (f/4.5, 1/1000sec, ISO 200) in a Dale Kobetich surf housing. I was holding my breath, swimming under the waves as well to capture the shot. Below is a “behind the scenes” version of a similar situation. – Sarah Lee
