New Zealand Surfing - - West to East -

Great pho­to­graphic mo­ments can some­times be all about be­ing in the right place at the right time, and other times cre­ated by great com­po­si­tion and tim­ing, then you have mo­ments that are cre­ated by a pho­tog­ra­pher read­ing the sit­u­atiuon and act­ing ac­cordlingly to pro­vide the nec­es­sary an­gle to create a great im­age, and then some­times you have all of the above com­bine at once. For Aloy­sius Lane this stun­ning mo­ment was al­ready pro­vid­ing a mind blow­ing im­age as the West Coast sun­set dropped to the hori­zon, then in what can only be de­scribed as freak­ish tim­ing the only surfer out over 1 kilo­me­tre away and not aware of a pho­togro­her present de­cided to make his way in, just as the sun hit the hori­zon. He could have pad­dled straight across the es­tu­ary and this im­age would never ex­ist, but luck­ily Aloy­sius saw he was mak­ing his way along the beach and ran down to get a lower an­gle so that the surfers path in­ter­sected with the sun. Con­grat­u­la­tions mate for the vi­sion and pa­tience that has deliev­ered us such an epic mo­ment.
