The Beautiful Wait

A signed fine art print of surfers sat outback waiting for waves on Fistral Beach, as seen from the North Coast of Cornwall in the South West of the UK.

By Cornish photographer Ben Battell.

Stood on the rocks at little Fistral I could see all the surfers waiting patiently for the sets to roll majestically in. As well as shooting a little video this evening I found myself looking at the beautiful way the cliffs in the distance melted into the horizon. I actually took this photo using an old manual focus zoom lens on my Fujifilm X-T3 which is what gives it the Warner rough round the edges feel.

Ben lives in Newquay, Cornwall, and specialises in coastal and in water fine art photography. Having lived in London working in an office job the call of the ocean was such that in 2018 he moved to Cornwall and found a reinvigorated love of the ocean. Photography from being a passionate hobby became a career.

You may have stumbled across me because of your mutual love and respect for the ocean, my passion project is creating stunning inspirational images of the sea. From heaving waves to glorious sunsets, and underwater realms, I aim to capture the very essence of the sea and the feeling, that like me I am sure you love when you spend time gazing into the ever-changing eyes of the ocean. Work you will find in my gallery is from travels around Cornwall, France, and Europe. In the future, I cannot wait to add more beautiful destinations from around the world.
