The Shot - A sunrise captured inside a wave barrel

By gokenji
This shot took me 6 months to shoot. I would wake up every morning at 4:30am to be in the water before the sun would rise. My goal was to capture the sun inside a barrel of a wave, so so difficult. So many mornings I would go and the clouds would be blocking the sunrise, other times water drops would be in the way, bad weather, or the waves were not big enough, it was extremely challenging to get this, but when I did I was so happy.

You can purchase this along with all my other photos on my kickstarter project that's available for a few more days.
