Photographer Karl Lundholm may have been born and raised on the west coast of Sweden, but he dreamed of traveling to somewhere he could hear the sound of crashing waves and feel the warmth of sunshine on his skin. Living overseas in Australia became his “little dream” until he actually made the trip in 2014, when that fantasy become reality. Since then, Lundholm has spent the past year living in Queensland, where he captures stunning photographs of sparkling ocean waves against the gorgeous backdrop of the setting sun.
Each of Lundholm’s images is a unique expression of the sea’s beauty, as no two waves are alike. Giant swells of water glisten like glass, while wild breakers send crystal-clear droplets splattering in the air. Although the photographer doesn’t surf himself, several of his images feature the dynamic silhouettes of surfers looking to ride the waves on the beautiful Coolangatta beach.
