Severn Bore - markhumpage
One of the advantages of witnessing the bore on a boat is the ability to get very close to the wave and capture unique angles. There was a price to pay mind. In order to get behind and ahead of the bore requires some pretty risky boat handling in order to ride over, and in some cases under the wave. Needless to say my camera gear and I got drenched on many occasions. This shot comes from behind the leading wave (in fact at this location there was a succession of many waves) and I was fortunate to get a surfer wandering towards me preparing to ride. 
Olympus E1, 18-180mm, F7.1, 1/125s.
