If the names Warren Keelan or Ray Collins ring a bell, it's because you've seen them before. Last year, Keelan posted a powerful photo series on Bored Panda showing the majesty of breaking waves, while Collins brought you photos of massive swells. Surf’s up! Inspired by these two artists, we've decided to make an open list of the most impressive wave photography on the net.

To capture a wave like this you'll need to use a shutter speed of at least 1/250 of a second or even more if you decide to zoom in. If you're wondering about the equipment, Warren Keelan wrote on Bored Panda that his favorite lens is Canon’s 70-200mm IS II 2.8, but he has also experimented with 15mm Fisheye. Ray Collins told us that he uses "fixed mid length primes from 14mm all the way to 400mm."

Have you captured something similar? Feel free to add it to our list!

That's something I haven't seen on the shoreline before. It reminds me of soap suds.
