Mechanics of a Wave

There are some days where everything just works with photography. From sunrise to sunset, this was one of them.

As for playing in the water, while it was 70 degrees out, the water was 54, which is….shall I say….uncomfortable. Within 15 minutes, muscle function was starting to disappear, so it was time to quit frolicking with hypothermia.

As for how I got the wave photos: GoPro Hero 3+ (with the waterproof case), set to 10MP, 10 shots per second burst mode. It took about 450 photographs to get this batch of interesting ones. I have always had a fascination with waves and the mechanics of how they work, and since they move so fast, there is a fraction of a second to freeze them in time.

This was the second foray with them. Last week, while it was 46 degrees outside, I tried this little affair with the GoPro. I didn’t get as wet for starters, and also had to work out the details of the camera, what works, and what does not.

I am getting a wet suit. This is ridiculous.
