Title: Ebb and Flow

About the Photo:

This series of images was a project to capture ocean water creating impressions against a black sand beach. Started this journey by searching for a black sand beach without having to travel to Hawaii. Found such a place in Shelter Cove, California and the trip was on. Once there, I found several black sand beaches but what worked best for me was a beach with small black pebbles. It provided a better background, contrast, and texture. The ebb and flow of the ocean water became the paint brush against a canvas of black pebbles to create the images above.
