Thurston Photo

The most powerful attribute of this photograph for me, is the shape and flawless curve that this wave has created, which is one of the most attractive characteristics of the breaking wave. It astounds me every time how perfect the arch can be when a wave breaks. There is so much elemental matter and energy that has to be organised in order for this phenomenon to take place, a miracle that can be overlooked so easily. I shot this photograph off a reef platform on the south coast of NSW with a 50mm lens, while swimming freely through the waves. I had every intention to get as close as possible to isolate the arch and have it take up most of the frame. There’s a lot of things to think about when attempting to capture a scene like this, the most notable is to position yourself in such a way that the wave does not overthrow you, this is a skill that kicks in subconsciously after thousands of hours spent learning wave behaviour and ocean movements.

Please allow 6-10 days minimum off season (and up to 10-12 business days) during holiday seasons due to increased demand. If you live outside of Australia we strongly suggest ordering a rolled print only and have it framed locally in your area to avoid potential shipping damages. We do not ship frames larger than 20” x 30” overseas.

Canvases: Our high quality 400gsm Fine Art Stretched Canvases come in the option of Natural or Metallic. Our Canvases boast a fine structure and premium bright white inkjet coating for amazing reproduction of the ocean art. Each canvas is sprayed with a liquid laminate, which not only enhances the colour but also protects against UV fading, dust, minor scratches and water spills. They are then, gallery wrapped over a stretcher bar made from quality Australian pine and finished with a tape seal backing. It's arguably the best Canvas product you can possibly buy.

Acrylic Panels: Our Acrylic Panels are a premium and modern choice, showcasing the art in an an almost 3d effect. Printed on Metallic Fine Art Paper then set into a high quality 6mm crystal clear acrylic panel that floats on the wall using an Aluminium french cleat hanging system.
