You might think this photo is just luck, and it is somewhat luck but as a photographer you always visualise an image before hand. Especially because I have seen these scenarios before. Just before I took this image, I looked behind me, I do that from time to time exactly for this reason. Birds occasionally fly past me, riding the waves. So I had seen 1 coming a long in the distance. I just hoped that it would come ride the same wave that I was photographing. Which it did, I am so glad the wave and bird lined up so well. Also he fact that the colors and lighting had been at it’s best during this moment.
