Comments: "They say luck is preparation meeting opportunity, but that can work both ways in photography. In this case, I set up for the most compelling land angle I could find, but then the elements had their way. A good turn and an unexpected foam explosion was countered by a spray-covered face, and a distracting water photographer. There's only so much under your control."
