Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past.
Just another typical sunset in San Diego.
Unless you are a serious photographer, I don’t think that most people think about what it actually takes to get a shot. I usually travel hundreds or thousands of miles to other states/countries on photo adventures lugging around a 40 pound backpack full of camera gear. For this shot, I only had to drive a few miles from my house. The surf was big, and the waves were splashing over top of the jetty. The crashing waves drenched me several times, including my camera gear. The boulders were very slick, and of course, I slipped and fell. For those of you that know me, that’s not out of the ordinary! 😂😂😂 I seem to always come home from my trips with some kind of war wound. But it’s all part of the adventure.
By the way, if you have never used filters in your photography, or are just learning, I would be happy to discuss the proper use with you, and the applicable NiSi filter solution. Just DM me to get the conversation started.

PHOTO TIP - Try something new, get out of your comfort zone, and share the experience with a good friend. I do this by going on adventures to some of the most beautiful places on earth, by putting on my waders and walking out into the middle of a raging river, by hiking for hours upon hours to get to a particular spot to shoot, by having an adventurous spirit and a passion for exploration and discovery. You never know what you are capable of until you push your limits.
