Incoming Wave

Incoming Wave

Punakaiki is known for its "pancake rocks," which is the main draw for visitors. But, around that area are other great views of the ocean, wave-beaten rock formations, and rocky coastlines. This image is one taken from the pancake rock walking track, so it was easy to get to. The hardest challenge in crafting this image was keeping the camera and lens dry, as it was actually raining quite heavily while I was there. Despite using film, I took several frames trying to time the exposure to capture an incoming wave. Weeks later, after having the film developed, I was rewarded with this image, which I then converted to black and white. Mamiya 7ii, 65mm Wide Angle lens, Kodak Portra 400.
