Transcendence

Early morning off the Southern California coastline near Santa Catalina Island. The image was created in-camera on film, no photo retouching, just the way it appeared in the wild. The serenity of the image belies the challenge of getting the shot -- the boat and subject are moving, light conditions were low, and keeping my own reflection out of the frame, as I am perched over the bow looking straight down with a 24mm wide-angle lens.
