Fort Tilden Ocean Waves Silhouettes

Black and White Photographs on a sunny summer day at the Fort Tilden Beach on New York City´s Rockaway Peninsula.

The wind was stronger that day and so were the waves! Many people, including me, enjoyed to play in the waves, to surf them without a board, just jumping into an incoming one and letting the power of the wave do the rest. Body surfing needs a lot of energy! After 30 minutes I went out of the water and started to capture some of the action.  The long beach setting is the perfect opportunity for a telelens! Using my trusty Pentax K-5 with the cheap and sharp Tamron 70-300mm lens I crouched down into the surge and here are the results:
