California Photography: Seascapes
Coastal photography taken in San Francisco, San Diego, Big Sur, Santa Barbara and more.
Coastal photography has been one of my main focuses for a long time. Growing up by the sea in San Diego, the ocean has always been a place for me to relax and clear my head. Taking seascape images has allowed me to do two of my favorite things. Spend a day at the beach and shoot photography. Below are images taken over the years from 2011-2018.
These are two of my favorite coastal images I have ever taken. The first taken in San Francisco during a low tide and the second taken at the famous Davenport Crack near Santa Cruz California.
Two completely different compositions and days around the San Francisco coastline. I have gone back to these locations countless times over the years. These two days provided some incredible light.
Baker Beach, not far from the Golden Gate Bridge. With some incredible winter stormy light and some rough seas.
Two different evenings and perspectives from Rodeo Beach in Marin County.
This was by far one of the most incredible displays of light I have ever seen in San Francisco. This panorama shows a 180 degree perspective near the Golden Gate Bridge.
Two different beaches with double sea-stacks. The second image was taken using a twilight blend method. By taking the foreground after sunset and then waiting 20 minutes to capture the sky, so that I could achieve the shorter shutter speed for the water motion with the stars.
One of the more unique rock formations found on the Half Moon Bay coastline.
Found along the Santa Cruz and Davenport coastline are some beautiful rock formations and flows.
Rugged costal cliffs along the Big Sur Coastline. One of my favorite places in California to camp and explore.
While Santa Barbra might not offer the ruggedness of the Northern Coast, there are still some beautiful gems to find.
My hometown of San Diego, where my journey through photography started. I still gain inspiration every time I come back to visit.
