The Pacific coastline is replete with incredible opportunities for photography. The subjects are varied ranging from dramatic bluffs to sea stacks, craggy rocks, tafoni, and piers. The overall atmosphere is often enhanced by waves, storm clouds or the marine layer. It is no wonder this area attracts photographers from far and wide.
I particularly enjoy making images late in the evening when most visitors are making a beeline for the exits ! At this hour, the entire coastline is enveloped in pastel hues and it is often hard to separate the expanse of the ocean, sky and shore.
That was quite specifically the mood I intended to create while making this image. I waded far enough into the ocean to amplify the feeling of being amidst the infinite. The oncoming waves, cloudless skies and the marine layer induced haze were all enveloped in the hues of the setting sun rendering the scene in sweep of pastel pink !
