Stupid things i do....

A few years ago when we were on the Big Island i was shooting these huge waves crashing unto the side of these cliffs. It was really incredible as the whole cliff would shake under my feet, the sound was amazing and the water sprayed soo high! I was shooting pictures at a safe distance but of course as always i had this uncontrollable urge to get get closer. While getting closer does make better pictures many times it is a stupid thing to do......this was one of those times. I could have easily been knocked flat on the ground or fallen into the ocean. Anyway i got closer saw a big wave coming and got my camera up to my face and got ready, as the wave hit i began to take photos in a fast sequence. Everything inside of me told me to run......but i stayed and i got SOAKED!!! I was drenched and so was my camera, its times like this that i am grateful that Nikon cameras are built like a tank cus my gear goes trough this kind of scenario all to often but they still live to tell the tale. I was able to laugh about it later and looking back on it now i ask the question.......would i do it again? YOU BET I WOULD!

Heres a short animation for you to enjoy and laugh at me. Enjoy!!
