Ocean Flames

A surfer faces a crashing wave at the pier in Estoril, Portugal.

Capture description: I took the photo on my way to buy groceries. I always carry my phone in my pocket - not to call or text, or to browse the internet, but to make visual notes, to capture small everyday moments that happen and disappear very quickly. I always see them in black-and-white even before taking the picture. On this particular occasion, the afternoon light, the crashing waves and the solitary surfer all manifested in perfect harmony right in front of me.
