Photo of the month for August 2013. You can buy a print of this photo in my store (opens in a new browser tab/window).

August was unusual in 2013, especially at the coast – the marine layer which normally only makes May and June grey and gloomy often lingered in the coastal areas well into the day – I’ve been out there on some mornings as these conditions are ideal for long exposure work. This session in La Jolla was great, I met fellow photographers Joe and Jennifer (who was visiting from Florida) and we enjoyed the cool and relatively quiet morning. Initially I had processed the images in black & white, but when I switched back to color just out of curiosity I played with false color a little bit, and quite liked how it supported the serene atmosphere of the images. I want to try more color long exposure work in the future, and this is my favorite reminder for that.
