[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In this time of holidays I had no much time or opportunity to visit, in regular bases, TL gallery or my TL friends galleries; I hope you all understand.

However when the opportunity appears here I am, saying hello, thanking you all the visits and words, making some critics, and leaving a photo of my almost failed «holidays project» that I thought dedicated to one of the most amazing activities of summer: surf.

«Riding the storm» is my third photo in that summer series, and was taken in my «private paradise», Foz do Arelho, located in west of Portugal, near Leiria, at 100 Km of Lisbon.

With my wishes that you ride the all storms and your life became a golden ocean,

Um tiro difícil, mas tomado com uma maneira excelente por você.
O movimento é muito bom frosen e os detalhes da onda são afiados.
Eu gosto quase da falta das cores.
Trabalho muito bonito e atrativo.
Sobre meus portuguêses eu sei que são pobres, mas eu de tentativa !

Hello Jose,

This is a fine depiction of the forces of the Atlantic!
The curving surf is a great element in the composition, captured with nice play of light and sharp fine details...
And of course the surfer, hopefully he got up to enjoy the wave!

Greetings,
Pablo -

Good morning Jose,
Such force created by the waves, and the surfer amidst the wave is brave and create a wholesome effect. Lighting is good, it is a dynamic photo. My compliments.....Danilo
