New Jersey-based photographer Ryan Struck's surfing wave photos are stunning in that they capture one-of-a-kind breaking waves under the glisten and glow of natural sunlight. These photos will leave you 'struck' by the beauty of the waves that are the lifeblood of the sport of surfing.
Struck captured the photos in the morning and evening, times when natural light brings out hypnotic blue and purple hues from the ocean. Struck's gaze makes the waves look as if they are sculpted from glass. Some of the waves were captured in Tahiti, and obtain their beautiful shapes from the coral reefs formed below the surface.
These surfing wave photos can be found in Eastern Surf Magazine, where he is a senior photographer, and in Surfing Magazine, where he is a contributing photographer. "When I'm in the water, nothing else matters," Struck says. "My mind is clear."
