Waves vs. Mountains, by Ray Collins
Today is a highlight of the remarkable work of the Australian photographer Ray Collins. Passionnated by the waves since 2007, he captures them at the top of their cresting, just before disappearing into the water. At this precise time, they look like unshakeable mountain peaks.
Once in the water, on his surf, Ray loves photographing these ephemeral moments and takes pleasure from playing with the relationship between water and light. This is exactly what drives him to peel himself out of bed in the dark each morning! He explains on his website that he “feels more at home floating in saltwater with his camera than anywhere on land”.
We are not the only one to love his pictures since he already get a lot of rewards. The last one? Being among of the Smithsonian Photo Competition 2015 finalists!
