“Big Wave” – San Sebastián, Spain – Oier Aso – Featured Photographer
It is not often that a wave blocks a mountain from view. In fact, I don’t think I have ever seen it before. This splash has to be at least 100 feet high if it is an inch. I also love the dark tones of the image. You really feel that poor guy is risking his life for a great image. I guess he made the 5 o’clock news. Oier has a really cool style to his images. Check out anyone of his sites below to see what I mean.
The photo was taken in San Sebastián, in the north of Spain with a Nikon d90 and with a nikkor 24 f2.8 lens. Iso 200, f3,5 v1/2500. It was an hour to catch this huge wave, risking myself because of the height of the waves but finally I’ve got it! Lots of photographers and also the local TV were near me to catch that moment too.
