It was Merimbula NSW on a very cold morning, waiting for the sunrise when a couple of surfers arrived. The wind was blowing but I waded to a rocky outcrop with my tripod. Even with waves around my knees I managed some good shots and kept my camera dry.

You don’t need to be a surfer to appreciate just how challenging the conditions are for the subject of Graeme Edwards’ Catching a Wave. In fact I should imagine many non-surfers would wonder what on earth this chap is thinking given that glowering sky and those menacing rocks being pounded by great green-faced waves.
