Heaven Is On A Wave - Surfer At Newquay
Photograph - Photo Art
From my first time watching surfers on a beach in California, I've been in love with the idea of surfing. So far, it's remained a spectator sport for me, but it's one of the only things I can sit and watch for hours without noticing the passage of time. It's as if riding a wave is so zen it's even a spiritual experience for me as a viewer!
This photo art piece is based on a surfer heading for the beach in Newquay, Cornwall. I spent a couple of nights in a hostel just above Towan Beach and as much time as I could down on the beach enjoying the sights. The seaside is dreamy on its own for me, but getting to watch people surf ratchets it up a notch.
It's the timeless nature of surfing that accounts for some of the retro coloring that I went for in this print. Perhaps like an old surfing movie poster or some other period beach art.
One of my favorite aspects is that I caught the surfer mid-stride, neither foot on the beach. Makes it feel perhaps just a bit more heavenly don't you think?
