“Hope you enjoy my view of the world,” said North Carolina photographer, Jaredd Bell. As The Surf Channel’s Photo of the Week, this point-of-view barrel shot is one of Bell’s most recent masterpieces. The black and white ride and iconic East Coast pier captures the essence of chuncky windwell in eastern North Carolina.
“This was taken on a late afternoon… The wind was onshore/sideshore with the water still holding onto it’s winter chill,” Bell described to The Surf Channel. “There were maybe 2 or 3 of these little barrels that would come through per hour, and I was lucky enough to catch one of them.”
