5 months have gone by in 2014 and Ive barely gotten my camera out of its bag. Im not sure what exactly Ive been doing that has pushed photography to the back burner but I just havent shot much this year. When Willie and I both saw the forecast for this particular evening we debated quite a long time about where to go. We were feeling slightly lazy and decided to head down to the beach.

The California coast has thousands upon thousands of amazing spots to pull over and watch the waves crash against the rocks. This particular inlet kept Alan and I busy for quite a while. There were so many options. I think I spent at least 30 minutes watching the way the waves and water came crashing in. So many possibilities Ultimately I loved the way the water looks like its coming straight for me in this photo. I just love the motion The marine layer blocked any chance of a colorful sunset but I found the black and white helped with the mood of the photo.
