Breaking Surf

no images were found

We love the California coast between Half Moon Bay and San Francisco. It’s a treasure of a drive at any time of the day. Heading into the city one evening we picked a solitary cove for a sunset walk and shoot. The sun angles didn’t present any really obvious shots. At one point I even waded out through a rock channel into a smaller cove, where all of a sudden I found myself trapped with incoming tide pounding against the rocks and coating the Nikon D30o with saltwater. Eventually I setup on the beach, content to just shoot the sun streaming through the waves.

This was one of those shots that seemed pretty useless in the field. But Carole brought it to my attention during the Adobe Bridge edit that night. It was a fantastic array of color streaming through the translucent waves. It became one of her favorite photographs.
