The sky wasn’t doing much of anything until the sun dipped down past the horizon. I was about to leave when I saw the sky starting to light up. I was pleasantly surprised by the light that was going off. I had never even noticed this composition before, but since the tide was so high the crack was filling with rushing water. I was pretty excited to see a new composition from this area. If anyone is familiar with La Jolla, then you know there aren’t too many unique compositions left to shoot. I was about 3 feet from the first house that sits on the rocks. I had never seen the tide so high in this area before. I had almost left without shooting, since the conditions weren’t exactly ideal. I’m glad I stuck around for this one.
You really must view this one on black to appreciate the shadow detail. Thanks for comments.
I Wanted to give a big shout out to Ryan Dyar and David Thompson for helping me tone my processing over the past year. They both offer some great Skype workshops and are incredibly nice guys. Ryan has a new video out as well. Do yourself a favor and check out their websites below:
I was going to save this image for my website that I am making, but I think sitting on my hard drive for over a year was long enough. As the temperature begins to rise in AZ, I am reminded of how much I miss living in San Diego. Despite the summers being mostly lackluster for seascapes, I miss the cool ocean breeze. I took this image last March as the marine layer was shitting on my sunset. After all the years of living in San Diego, I never once got a good sunset with this composition. I considered throwing all the images out from this night, because the marine layer, but I was pleasantly surprised once I opened them up on my computer. I hope you all enjoy it.
