The Ocean

Laguna Beach, California
 I love the water. I grew up one block from the beach on the Jersey shore. The sound of moving water is hypnotic for me - I love waterfalls, oceans, reflective lakes and swampland. What I like even more is water with clouds or fog hanging around. Seems to have a calming effect for me - rain has that effect also.

As a kid I can remember always being around the water, riding my bike to school or spending weekends on or around the beach and ocean. Today's image truly mirrors my feeling about water.

This image is from Laguna Beach, California. I was out there a few years back tooling about at sunrise looking for images when I came upon this scene. Luckily enough it was so early that most of the parking spaces by the shore were open (not the case later on a summer day) therefore I was able to simply pull over, grab a camera and tripod and capture the image.

Captured with a Canon 5DMKII, 24-105MM Lens, converted via lab mode to black and white

PS: I found it necessary to start another blog on my  iPhone work only. For some reason that I have yet to figure out if you are subscribed to this blog you will also receive my iPhone-Antics blog. I am in the process of figuring out how to separate them. Thanks for your understanding.
