Pescadero in Monochrome - Pescadero State Beach, California

    My girlfriend and I had the chance to meet the famous Brian Rueb, or chaybert to some.

    We met at Pescadero State Beach to catch a sunset, albeit a foggy one.

    A few observations:

    1) Brian did not have a crockpot waiting for us. He only breaks that out for workshops I guess.

    2) The shoot did not involve any extremely foul weather, therefore lending support to the theory Stephen Oachs is the root cause for rain when Brian and he shoot together.

    3) Brian can indeed fit inside his Prius for sleeping, although my truck bed and an air mattress would be much cozier.

    4) Brian likes the Dave Chappelle Show. Super bonus points for that..

    5) If you like hoppy beer, hang out with Brian, he won't drink it. He likes pilsners and hefeweizens.

    It was great meeting you Brian, we'll have to do it again some time.

      Great capture and portrayal of the 'rush', but it's the silhouetted rocks on the horizon that do it for me.

      Glad you got to meet Brian.
      Mmmm.... hoppy beer and Dave Chapelle. Sounds like a great night! You might need that air mattress after all :-)

      Great scene- I really like the effect the cross hatching of the water gives.

      I would have to agree, Brian is a pretty cool guy and his photography has came so far since I first met him about 2 years ago.....

      Ill hang out with Brian anytime but now I have more reason, just based on #5 up there...

      This is a great shot and I think the BW works well...
