Australian photographer Warren Keelan (previously here and here) completely immerses himself in his subject matter, wading alongside gigantic waves to capture the perfect break. Keelan is fascinated by the unpredictable nature of ocean swells, in addition to how the changing sunlight dictates the way each movement is captured.
Keelan manages to develop a story with the moments he photographs by carefully following how waves interact with natural elements such as the setting sun or a chance rainbow on the horizon. The New South Wales-based photographer has compiled 12 of his most captivating recent photographs into a 2018 calendar available on his website. You can see more of his work on his Instagram and Facebook.
