Do you think the surfer is aware he's about to be eaten up by a huge sand cloud? This is what I love about the "top down" perspective from a drone, seeing the world in way you wouldn't see from the ground. The colours, shapes and textures of the sea from up here never seem to disappoint. The sand got kicked up from the sea bed by a passing wave leaving this huge Seahorse shaped sand cloud. Im pretty sure the surfer is unaware of its presence, not that it could cause any harm of course but more to the point that it creates a pretty mesmerising picture! Watching the sand cloud grow and take shape just after the wave passed by was pretty spectacular to. This picture mostly came down to patience and timing. I really wanted to achieve that separation between the sea, surfer and sand cloud. If the shot was taken to early the sand cloud wouldn't of looked as big nor would of it had quite the same shape. If the shot was taken to late the surfer would of been submerged by the cloud which would of defeated the point of what I was trying to achieve.
