I specialize in landscape photography but also enjoy photographing sports.
I decided to go to Nazare in Portugal to photograph a bodyboard competition, as Nazare is well known for its big waves. I was hoping I could take some images of the athletes in the air or riding some big waves.
I arrived early in the morning and this was one of the first images I took that day. I just hoped I had taken the photograph in the right moment and that the focus was on the right spot.
To capture this image I used a Canon EOS 5D Mark III with a Canon EF 300mm f/4 L IS USM. I used a high shutter speed to freeze the action.
