I have been photographing waterscapes at sunrise along the Northern California coastline for some time. I am soothed by the water’s movement, the changing light around me, the impact of the weather, the sounds. I long to be present with the quiet serenity of the early morning moments, capturing the waves, the stillness, the simplicity.
The quality of early morning images is unique. Moisture is suspended in mid air, blurring horizon lines and blending the colors and tonal values of the scene. Water and sky may seem to merge altogether or simply visit each other’s lair. These images pay homage to these precious, fleeting, meditative moments.
