gulf of mexico

In the early stages of this project I took a last minute trip down to Texas during Hurricane Rita. This is my favorite image from the trip. During the peak of the swell, a huge tanker headed out to sea right past all the surfers, the tanker riding up and down on the swells. It was a spectacular site. And I felt it summed up Gulf Coast surfing well. Eerie looking at this now with the current spill.
