Back to the Sea

Hospitals Reef, La Jolla, California

Yesterday it was raining for what must be the tenth day since Thanksgiving week.  Rather than head downtown to photograph a wet San Diego I figured it was time to leave the city streets and re-visit the reef in La Jolla.  I desired a clean, refreshing sea breeze, heart-pounding surf, and a dark and moody seascape. 

Since it was raining at home I expected a rainy and empty coast but what I got was a sky full of slightly angry clouds, a light mist, and people crawling all over the reef.  The coast being clear of rain was a good thing, leaving only large and roiling cloud formations; perfect actually.  The flow of tourists walking through my frame was annoying, this person however, really made the scene.  Thank you, stranger.

I love the first image with your model taking it all in. Sometimes I have the desire to live near the ocean just so I could quickly drive to the coast.

Great series here, Joe. And I agree, the person in the top image really adds someting special to it, gives it that sense of emotion that fits the title. And I love the birds in the last image. Looks like it was a good decision heading to the shore instead of into town.
My favourite, cloud-filled seascapes. Beautifully energising.
Love me some angry clouds - and you are right, having that one person really helps the photograph.
