Luke Shadbolt, the Sydney-based nature photographer and creative director, has spent months capturing scenes of colossal waves which put on display the true power of Mother Nature and give the viewer a new perspective on each wave’s dramatic, mystifying glory.

The artist describes the photo series on his website by stating it is “a cursory glimpse of the exchange, cycle and balance of power fundamental to the functioning of our planet and its oceans.

Shadbolt will soon open his very own art studio and photo gallery in New York City. You can follow his work at the Michael Reid Gallery in Sydney and Berlin or follow him on his social feeds.
