I am so fortunate to live within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. With a photographic subject so grand literally on my doorstep, it's no coincidence that coastal images dominate this site.
Living in the Arizona desert for most of my adult life, I had no idea how much a beach changes day to day and even from high to low tide. I can visit the beach one day and it's a vista of smooth, windswept sand. On other days, the water has washed it all away, revealing the rocks below.
I made this photograph on the last day of 2015 with my Contax RX and Carl Zeiss 50mm Planar lens. The film stock was Kodak Plus-X.
