"Melancholy Surfer"

Photo of a melancholy surfer on the beach at sunset.

Say what you will about surfers, but they are undoubtedly some of the most dedicated folks on the face of the planet. Regardless of the season or the weather, you'll find them on many of the world's beaches, ever ready and willing to jump in and catch a great wave whenever one decides to present itself. Want proof? Just check out the "Picture of the Day" from March 10, 2005.

Today's picture features yet another highly dedicated surfer. This poor soul is standing on the beach looking out at the sea as a most spectacular sunset signals the end of the day - and along with it the end of the fun. But of course there is always tomorrow with yet another sunrise, followed by yet another fun-filled day of riding wave after wave after wave...

The photographer who captured this beautiful image wishes to remain anonymous, but he/she used the following camera and settings to create this masterpiece:
    Camera: Sony Cybershot DSC-S600
    Focal length: 15mm
    Shutter speed: 1/100 second
