Favorite Shot From The Great American Coastline Project...So Far!
Well, I've taken a lot of photographs over the past seven weeks as Jan and I travel up the Pacific Coast. We're about to leave California and make our way up the Oregon coast...I'm just so excited, this has been a dream of ours for a very long time, The Oregon coast is almost a photographers Mecca, a pilgrimage all landscape photographers want to make.
Last night I reviewed all the best images so far. It turns out that my favorite is not a sharp picture...even the horizon is a little soft, but it does seem to capture the movement and the feeling you get when you watch the ocean in it's constant advance and retreat along the coast. In a way, it reminds me of a popular photograph from the eighties taken of a matador swishing his red cape as the bull charges...it was taken with a slow shutter speed and it captures so much more than what a super sharp photograph would have done. That's what I feel about this shot...I always try to capture some movement in water, but not quite like this, I can't wait to print it up!
