We are fans of wave photography around here, and the popularity of our "Most Beautiful Waves" slideshow is proof. So when we caught word of another photographer doing amazing work in this genre, Scotty Carter, we were excited to show off his images to you.

Carter says he started photographing waves as it was a way to combine "a love of surfing and a romance with my camera."

"There is something about the natural harmony of water, light and energy coming together. I find myself drawn to the energy and color of the ocean and its waves and after spending many years focused on wave riders in both water photography and cinematography, I found myself pulled in the direction of capturing the raw and natural beauty of the waves themselves."

Here are some incredible images from his collection. Enjoy!
