Three Mile December

The weather in California for December and January has been like springtime. I took the opportunity to visit my favorite beach near Santa Cruz. I started by shooting the surfers but as the waves grew messy and the light too strong in the direction I needed, I soon had the lens pointing in the direction of the better light and some amazing wave shapes. The results were better than I hoped as the bright light can make the display hard to see.

 

I was so amazed at the quality of these that I switched to just waves for the rest of the day and beyond. I was soon back shooting the surfers when the action was better and I had better light, but I now have a new focus on the details of the waves I sometimes take for granted.
