My friend Zach and I decided to brave the 6-8′ waves and 30+ MPH winds in late June, just outside the White Lake Channel on Lake Michigan. I wanted to get a shot of the splashing from the bow, but it was so hectic and insane that this would be a truly difficult task! I snapped off a few pics and they were decent. All of a sudden, a HUGE wave smashed into the side of the boat, sending a wall of water over the deck. I was soaked and couldn’t even see through the view finder, but I took a picture as best I could. At 1/2500th of a second, this is what it looked like for that brief moment in time. We kept sailing and eventually had to reef the main (shrink the sail down to a smaller surface area) to avoid snapping the mast. We made it back just fine… in fact, we had a blast. I’m just glad I have one frame to remember that adventure by. I hope you enjoy it as well. Best Regards, David Ruck
