Webbed hands - Ocean art from the Gold coast.

September 14, 2013

Webbed hands is one of my favorite photographic pieces of ocean art that I have taken on the Gold Coast. The backwash from the nearby rock wall was creating some amazing flares in the waves as they crashed down onto the sand. I spent hours floating around near Kingscliff beach to capture this little wave and capture the back wash.

Upon reviewing my images from this session this photo really appealed to me. I was staring at it on my computer screen looking at all the different textures and colours, how the wave looks like it has some hands pushing through to say “hello” or maybe the ocean is trying to grab me and consume me.

Photos of the ocean from this particular spot create for some amazing clarity in the water. I have several other images in my online store catalog from the same day including this panoramic shot where you can see the nearby rock wall and the sand beneath the wave.

Surf photography camera equipment I use to capture these amazing photos of the ocean.

·         Canon 5D mkIII & Canon 7D

·         Tokina 10-17mm fisheye (soon to be upgraded)

·         Aquatech CO-7 water housing

·         Aquatech LP1 Dome port

·         Aquatech pistol grip

The Aquatech water housing systems are some of the best sports housing available. The team at Aquatech are constantly working hard at producing incredible customer service along with a vast range of knowledge and expertise. The main reason I have chosen Aqautech instead of some of the other brands out there is for their customer service, interchangeable ports and pistol grips can be interchangeable with other housings. I originally bought the CO-7 water housing for my Canon 7D but thankfully the same water housing was able to fit my Canon 5DmkIII with a small upgrade to the back plate and buttons and also the locking plate.

My advice when purchasing a water housing for your DSLR camera is to look at it from an investment point of view and work out how it will save you money in the long run. After all these items aren’t cheap and you want to use them for as long as you possibly can.

You can purchase webbed hands via my online store; you can also purchase any of my ocean art photographic giclee’s on canvas, metallic photographic paper and acrylics. If you would like to see these items in person head on down to Gold coast images gallery and café in Broadbeach QLD Australia where you can see loads of my work printed on canvas and framed metallic prints. You can also purchase these items from the gallery.
