Photographer Nick Rapley Captures the Magnificence of the Ocean

New Zealand-based photographer Nick Rapley captures heart stopping photos of the ocean.

The power of Nick's images is strong, it fascinates and dazzles even as it evokes salt air and wisps of foam on your face. The ocean isn't his only passion, Nick's subjects vary from people in love to mountainous landscapes.

In regards to his work, Nick says: "Growing up next to one of our most beautiful wild coastlines sparked my introduction to surfing at a young age. As I spent more and more time in the water I became completely captivated with the ocean and its beauty. As I continue my journey in life, producing images that tell a story whether it be of the ocean, a landscape, or a couple sharing a moment of love, this is what I want to do. Creating photos of these moments and making them last forever. "
