This was shot on the North Coast of California. This is very simple but at the same time, has a lot going on in this composition. I saw the spotlighted water and decided to use it as a compositional element. I centered it and the put the horizon line in the lower portion of the frame to give the composition weight with the large over hanging clouds. Simple and at the same time very powerful!

Here’s a quick update of our west coast trip. We are traveling down the coast western coast of the US and plan to head into Yosemite sometime next week. We are currently in the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon and will be heading to Redwood National Park and staying in Eureka tomorrow night. I’ve been shooting a lot of photos for both of my agencies but I’m really looking forward to Yosemite and shooting something for myself. The only problem is there maybe snow in the Serra Mountains so we may have to change our plans and stay along the coast. We have no destination, we’re just traveling and taking photos, good times!

I shot it at Alki Beach in Seattle on Saturday during the golden hour. I’m getting to the point where I only want to shoot during that hour before sunset. I get so many more keepers. But I will guarantee that when I submit this one to the stock photo agencies; at least one reviewer will reject it for having lighting problems. I did shoot her from the other side too but this has so much more drama.
