Sea Foam

Leading edge foam from incoming surf curls and wraps over itself as it begins to retreat revealing smooth pebbles in the black sand of Waimea Beach on the island of Kauai, Hawaii.

Technical Details

Canon 1N; EF 28-70mm @ 50mm; Fujichrome Velvia 100


An interesting choice, to convert Velvia 100 to monochrome, especially given the current expense of slide film. Nonetheless, though I am not one for the beach, this piece certainly makes me want to head down and witness the wonderful power of the ocean. Nicely done.

Thank you, Cody. This is from before digital cameras existed. I never bought B&W film but I can “see” a scene without color. I found the color to be distracting so I scanned the image and converted it to monochrome .
