Behind every "portfolio" shot are hundreds of other shots that didn't make the grade. Sometimes they just didn't turn out the way I wanted...others, Mother Nature decided to teach me a lesson for being too complacent with my safety.
This day I was way too close to a rocky ledge and I was not watching how quickly the swell was increasing. I got a soaking along with my equipment, but it could have been so much worse, I could feel the power of those crashing waves and quickly realized I so easily could have been swept off the ledge. Lesson learned!
