Pacific Channel

This photo took a number of iterations before I felt happy with it.  I rarely bracket a scene and this was no exception so I had to work and re-work the sky before it felt right.  Next time I bracket.  I must have taken 20 pictures while standing there, trying to time the surf as it ebbed and flowed through the channel.  I posted it and then deleted it and then posted it and deleted it always finding some fault that I could correct.  I see one now as I'm writing this...

I saw this scene in B&W but when the colors started coming together and I liked the palette I decided to leave it in color and find another candidate for monochrome.  

I initially titled it "Thermometer Channel" but that was too many syllables and it just didn't glide off the tongue.  So, Pacific Channel eventually won the title competition; more prose than poetry but it'll do.
