About - It was shot at Freshwater Bay on the Isle of Wight on the last day of February 2014. The water is such a weird colour because a few days earlier there was a massive cliff fall just along the coast, and ever since the water has been full of chalk and really white and reflective, it also feels a bit heavier when a set wave hits you on the head. Was shot using a 500mm lens whilst standing out on the rocks known locally as 'the cabbage patch' on the right hand side of the bay.
