AFTER THE STORM
Shooting waves implies accepting to expose yourself few seconds to the ocean strength, its character and feel tiny in front of the water in movement.
Just the time to take the photo, then you have to pass under this mass of water, to avoid it, at the risk of a rough verdict.
Back to the surface, get your breath back and it's time to get ready for the next one.
However, turning your head towards the sand can give you a new look on this wave. It shows itself softer and rounder, offering us a moment of quiet before the next storm. Delivering its power before finishing its short life dozens of meters further.
I fell in love with it.

Almost nine million years ago, the earth split open in the middle of the Atlantic and the resulting wound spouted the blood and the fire that created the Azores islands.
Far from everything, the Azores turned their back on time and witnessed how the rain and the salt colored their black lava green with vegetation and life. And it has maintained its quiet essence, adrift at sea, isolated from a loveless world, safeguarding its sublime purity from an extinct era.
Because summer means summer waves & crowds, we decided to ride up North to find a calm spot where to spend the week-end. Good friends, good waves, none else in the water, perfect weather ultimately lead to good vibes. That’s the only way to sum-up this great moment.
Facebook, Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter, Whatsapp again... More and more it is more difficult to isolate ourselves, to escape from everything, to enjoy the silence. Silence… we are stupid enough so as to invent words that describe things that do not even exist!
