A prevalent theme in my photography is water. Whether I’m walking along the beach or walking through a city center, I’m drawn to water. Oceans, lakes, reflecting pools, rivers, fountains – I see one of these, and I reach for my camera. And the photo I share in this ON1 Inspiration episode is no exception.
I recently visited the southern Oregon coast. I spent a lot of my time hiking along the beaches. As much as I love the shores of my hometown of San Diego, it was a real treat to explore unfamiliar stretches of coastline. Not knowing what I’d find around each turn of the land was exhilarating.
It sounds totally cliche – but I felt like a kid again. When I was young, I’d walk the Jersey Shore in search of little treasures. I’d come home with my plastic pail filled with exotic shells, ocean smoothed glass and twists of driftwood.
Nowadays, I capture my sea treasures with my camera. Yet my formative year’s beach combing continue to influence my photography. I hope you enjoy this little treasure I found on Whaleshead Beach, a little north of Brookings, Oregon.
PS – For you ON1 Plus members, I also have a bonus behind-the-scenes video of another scene at Whaleshead Beach.
