NY-based photographer Dalton Portella is known for his dark and captivating wave photography. Capturing ocean views during stormy weather, these images are dramatic and visually striking in a gloomy way. Their artful aesthetic is elevated with the use of mood lighting, high contrast filtering techniques and by the raw beauty of nature itself.

Nature's unpredictable beauty is captured in this crashing wave photography series by Dalton Protella. The artist's portraits are candid and revealing, capturing a series of crashing waves, thunder storms and lighting snapshots. When captured, these impromptu images are surprisingly cinematic and emotive. Their surreal imagery resembles special effects one would see in a film or strokes that would adorn a photo-realistic, landscape painting.
