Back to Santa Monica. The joy of jet-leg - waking up at 04:15 in the morning, reading, thinking, watching the light.
At 6:30 it's still dark, at 07:00 light is on. Now I know when I need to go for some morning shooting. Today, I tell myself, today it's just for fun.
Grabbing the camera, selecting 2 lenses and off to the pier. On the way, I already see the light. it has a luminescent, whipped cream like texture. When i get to the pier, I am almost running. I never shot from the pier towards the east in the morning.
Looking for the exact angle that will let me catch the wave. I have the wrong filters with me, the light is burning the colors. But lying on the stomach on the pier, I see it. I really do.
Liquid silk. The sea is like a vast undulating shaft of silk, floating in the wind.
Barely believing my eyes, I click and click and click.....
You can see a lot by just looking. Indeed.
