The photography blog of Evan Conway.
Wednesday night I managed to log a few chilly hours shooting some empties provided by Tropical Storm Colin. The swell showed up way later than forecasted and only showed face for about 3 hours but still some views were to be had, some of which I have shared below.
There was a ton of hype around this past winter and if you didn't hear somebody talking about El Nino once, you must have been living under a rock somewhere in a cave off the grid in a faraway place. Since El Nino was in full effect most of the surf media was focusing on the West Coast, but truth be told all of us over here on the East Coast reaped the benefits of incredibly consistent swell and balmy water all winter. We didn't necessarily get the biggest waves but 2-3 really good days a week and surf-able waves everyday for months straight is unheard of. Below I have some of my favorite shots from the first 3 months of the year laid out for you, all you have to do is click one of the thumbnails and you can view the whole gallery in lightbox mode. Hope you enjoy and don't forget that every one of my pictures are available as prints and I do most of the printing in-house unless it is large format or you want it on a special material like canvas, metal or plexi. My email is Evan@evanconwayphoto.com to enquire about pricing.
