It is initialed or signed by the photographer in the lower corner with metallic ink (which is not on the sample image here). Please note that because it was shot on film will look a little grainier than a digital image when enlarged much larger, but still looks awesome. Waimea Bay is one the largest surf breaks in the world and these shorebreak waves are some of the most powerful on earth, generated by far distant North Pacific Ocean storms during the winter months (Sept-March).
They are an incredible example of the ocean's mightiness. This 20 foot high wave is breaking in water only about four feet deep. It has been said that one wave this size if harnessed for energy could provide enough electrical power to light a thousand homes for over an hour.Native Hawaiians, surfers, and a lot of oriental people consider these magnificent waves to be a supreme example of power and manifested with the spirit of mother nature. To actually see these waves breaking along the shoreline is an awesome and unforgettable experience. Finally after all these years and after many requests and inquiries for our many e-bay customers we're making these larger prints available over the internet for folks to enjoy. Bill's most recent jobs include providing scenic and vintage photos. Of nostalgia, and surfing background. Sony Pictures "Soul Surfer", "The Cleaner" on A&E/CBS Networks, Universal Pictures "Forgetting Sarah Marshall", and Warner Brothers Productions "The Big Bounce", filmed on the Oahu's North Shore, as well as CNN, Discovery, History, ABC, and TLC channels, and hundreds of other professional clients worldwide for several decades. They are popular reasonably priced decorations for restaurants, offices, homes, or stores where people can see them. They look very impressive wherever they may be displayed. These photos make an excellent, affordable, treasured, and unique birthday or holiday gift for some special person in your life! Please note that the colors and brightness may vary slightly depending on your individual computer screen settings and because it is from a 35mm original film Velvia transparency it may appear to be a little grainy or not super sharp very close up because it is enlarged from film to a much larger size than the sample you see here.
It will look sharper a few feet away and will look more like the the sample print you see here. When first evaluating it, we recommend that the viewer step back about five to ten feet to get the maximum visual impact. This copyrighted 20 x 30 inch unmounted giclee print was shot by professional surfing, and stock photographer Bill Romerhaus, of North Shore Photography, who has been shooting surfing and scenics since 1967.He is one of a very few photographers in the world who specializes in hand printing original black & white waves and surfing for many years in his darkroom (we also sell smaller prints on e-Bay), and now offers his color images too. This print will fit in a standard 20 x 30 inch frame, although there is a little extra white margin that may need to be custom trimmed to fit your frame. For the most impressive artistic impact we suggest using a 40 x 60 inch custom matted frame and we also recommend using a UV coating and UV glass for most permanence from environmental exposure. We also include a separate caption sheet with photography information for the back of a frame or display of the photo, and separate instructions with suggestions for making the print last longest. In 1965 he shot his first surfing photo and was a contributing photographer to Surfer, Surfing, and other magazines for several years.

He also worked as a contributing photographer to over 30 international surfing magazines and manufacturers, and as a photojournalist for over 100 publications and agencies worldwide. His photos have credited him with over 200 cover shots and full page advertisements. His work has appeared in Popular Photography, Shutterbug, American Photographer, Shape, Men's Fitness, Surfing, Surfer, Honolulu, Aloha, Honolulu Star-Bulletin & Advertiser newspapers, Outdoor, Outside, Conde Nast Traveler.
