For this week’s News Track, I am looking at the article, It’s a Nice Night for Surfing. Beware of Sharks, which was in the center of the New York Times home page. The photos for this article are stunning. The header image is a huge photo with an incredible range colors and the surfer lit up in the center.
Lower down in the article, there is a rotating set of portraits of the surfers with a green tinted light. There is also an option to zoom into the other images, which is a nice addition to the piece. It is a very visual story, and the images being large and enhanceable makes it even more interactive and engaging for the reader.
As always, there is the option the share and comment on the article. The one thing I found interesting about this article, is that there is only one link in the article and it links to a short YouTube video.
