Waves by Night: Hermosa Beach

This is the third of three images I captured tonight as I watched the sunset off the Hermosa Beach pier. Much better than a year ago exactly, where I first tried a digital camera to capture something of what I saw, smelled, felt and heard. Each time I visit, I try to memorize the intense experience that brings calm to me. The latest such image is taken one year after this one, in March 2007 at the Manhattan Beach, about 5 miles north of Hermosa Beach.


NOTE: A miracle happened with this photo and it was featured on the front of the New York Times Style Magazine as one of 5 covers for the Fall Fashion 2009 issue. The artist Jenny Holzer used the photo to create a wonderful design and you can read "the rest of the story" here:


Thank you to all who have stopped by on my photo stream and my brother's stream too from seeing this story featured on the flickr blog!
