Wanting a chance to shoot some silhouettes of surfers, and capture the light through the back of the waves, I set out later in the day.  Luckily at this time I live only 3 streets from the beach, so the timing was not an issue.  The problem was there were no surfers willing to go out close to the pier.  There was, however, a lone kayaker who wanted to seize the day I guess. Watching him for about 20 minutes before he got to this point, I was worried he would give up, or die.  After some serious spills, he got close enough to make it to the tip of a wave before it crashed, and I was standing in the right spot to get the shot I’d been waiting for, so everyone won in that particular moment.

The picture to me, says something about perseverance and success.  Individuals may not believe you can make it, even whole groups could count you out but with enough perseverance towards positive goals eventually success will follow.
