Backlit Wave Breaking at Five Finger Strand, Inishowen, Donegal

Backlit Wave Breaking at Five Finger Strand, Inishowen, Donegal

from 165.00

Photographer: Gareth McCormack

I wondered why this beach in Inishowen was called Five Finger Strand until I saw the series of rock stacks at the end of the headland. As a surfer, I've always been fascinated by the shape of waves. Here I was able to use a 300mm telephoto lens to bring the wave and rocks together. I waited for a set of waves large enough to crest on the sand bank beneath the cliffs. As the first wave stood up ready to break, the setting sun lit the plume of spray from behind.
