    What's this I say? Surfing...in Alabama? Yes, my friends it is true. Alabama actually does get good waves from time to time, you just have to be patient, sometimes very patient. Here are some photos I took this past week while on a business trip to Orange Beach. I did some surfing myself, but I found out after 2 1/2 years of not surfing it was kind of a struggle, although fun.

    All photos taken with a GH1 and Rokinon 85mm f/1.4. Most of those shots were taken around f/8. 85mm is the longest lens I have right now. It did OK here, could've used a little more reach but not bad. I had to do a good amount of cropping.

    I took lots of video but haven't gone through that yet. Whenever I do I'll have to get that posted...assuming it's not all garbage. :redface:
