40 Aggressive Examples of Waves Photography

February 10th, 2010

This post is dedicated to Waves and Surfing Waves Photography. Waves booming against the seashore can be a very soothing experience for anyone. Almost everyone loves the beauty of sea and ocean waves are the most attractive and appealing thing for everyone. However, waves do not have to look calm and nice. They can be aggressive, too.

Ocean wave photos, pictures of wave curls, ocean wave pictures, and other big wave pictures will bring the ocean and the upcoming summer season to you. Here are some amazing examples for your inspiration. We hope that you like them — and don’t forget to share your comments with us!

    I can literally feel the power of the wave that hit the photographer of the 4th picture two seconds after he took the photo. *outh*

    Flipping good photos though!

  20. web design guy on February 16th, 2010 at 4:08 am

    The one by Sandy Shack is awsum, Ive never seen a wave suck the sand dry. Some of these waves would hammer you badly. Mind if I use one as a temporary screen saver? M.

    These photographs are amazing and inspiring! I feel like I am the surfer… If you have never been surfing like me it is completely mind boggling how someone could even capture these moments. Rad!

  22. Russell F on February 16th, 2010 at 2:39 pm

    The photography here is totally amazing! It makes me want to go and see them too!
    Beautiful shots. Great collection.

    Luxusní fotky. Taky bych cht?l mít u nás mo?e, t?eba místo N?mecka… :D

    Wow Clark Little can’t seem to catch a break (no pun intended). Many of these photographs are by the amazing photographer Clark Little. Here is his website. http://www.clarklittlephotography.com/ I’ve seen these photographs on many other blogs and Clark NEVER gets credited. Even *some* of the blogs to which these photographs are linked don’t give him credit. This man stays out in the water for hours and hours and tries to get the exact right shot. These pictures are the result of a huge amount of time and effort. I don’t mean these comments to be inflammatory or to somehow put down or belittle the poster. I just like to see credit given where credit is due. Thanks.

    Inspiring post! I am hoping I can take some shots like that quickly. Many thanks so y for inspiring me.

    I saw this on another post and it made me smile

    Ive been a wave photographer for 6 years now. It certainly is not easy. Many broken bones, 5 days at the hospital, 3 ruined cameras. Most of the times I will shoot 700 shots and will not get one good shot, if we do get a good shot we are very happy.
