Fine Art Weekly: Morgan Wedge

We had to share some more shots from the Wedge for this installment of our Fine Art Weekly blog entry! This was an early morning shot at the Wedge in Newport Beach, CA from the recent swell.

The way the sun rises over the CDM cliffs can make for some incredible silhouettes...Even before we toned this image, the early morning sun exposure made it a near black-and white shot.

Digital is fun, but it's shots like this that make us long for the days of black and white film, dark rooms, endless hours developing film and prints...

We just love the way the lighting sheen's off the wave face to give the appearance of a dark copper or bronze. Not to mention the sheer ferocity of the wave as Morgan Craig charges down it's face!

Fine Art Weekly: Epic Wedge!

We've had a HUGE week of surf rolling through Orange County recently. Here's a shot from a recent session swimming with our camera at the Wedge in over 20 foot surf! (We think it's pretty epic!)

Fine Art Photography Water Shots

Fine Art Weekly: We spent some time in the water this past week, and wanted to bring you on of our favorite water shots.

We call this one "Rolling Bubble." If Monet had ever painted a barreling wave from underwater, it might have looked like this; colors reminiscent of his water lilies.

President Obama Announces Bin Laden Killed in Pakistan

Remember this Day. May 1, 2011: President Obama announces US Forces killed Osama Bin Laden, leader of Al Qaeda, during a fire fight in his hideout in Pakistan. We hope the families of those lost in the 9-11 attacks, and of those brave American Soldiers who lost their lives in the war efforts since, as well as all our many Veterans, can find some measure of Peace.
