Rocks off the shore near Whaler's Cove (D7000, 24-70mm at 28mm, 20sec f14, ISO 100)

I spent today wandering in Point Lobos Park, south of Monterey, with my friend Jason Bradley, looking for nice vistas to shoot… Composition was the order of the day. What is the point of this photograph? It’s rock and water. The idea, as Jason explained, is to identify why you are taking the picture, and simplify, until that’s all that’s left. (I’m paraphrasing, Jason. Put down the bottle!). Experimenting with long shutter speeds to get that creamy effect in the water, this is my favorite so far.

If you could look up, you’d see Monterey off in the distance.

Rocks and Water.  And in this case…. Time.
