My Return to the Ocean

This morning was the first occasion on which I have shot a seascape since June of 2013 - quite a long time. In the past few weeks I have felt a desire to head back out in the pre-dawn darkness and photograph the ocean and coastline again, a desire which has not been in me for [ read more ]
